Brown spots in my lawn.

Hello; When is the best time to treat a blue grass lawn for areas of brown spot? Dig it up & start over or treat with?

Thanks; Dave in St. Louis

Answer: HI The first thing you need to determine is what the cause for the brown spots are. Is it too much water? Do you need to get the thatch out? There can be any number of reasons.

The first approach that I would use is to aerate your lawn, get the thatch out and then reseed. But until you determine the problem your efforts might be in vain.

Kind regards Steve
