Sometimes you can get away with leaving your lawn to its own devices for a while - especially when the weather is right, but there will come a time it needs a little love and attention. Luckily, there are a few tell-tale signs for you to look out for, so you'll know you can give your lawn a helping hand before it's too late.
This is a major sign that your lawn is struggling. Typified by bald or discoloured patches, this can suggest that you're not watering your lawn often enough, or that you have an underlying problem that means your sod is in need of replacement.
If there are weeds growing in your lawn, it's time to start reassessing your routine. Pests like crabgrass can quickly overtake your lawn and kill off your sod grass if it's not treated. Herbicides, or in extreme cases, grass replacement, are the normal ways of dealing with tricky weed infestations.
When all of the grass in your lawn is looking a little off colour, there's a good chance it's lacking in some vital nutrients. Adding some fertiliser and regular applications of lawn food to your routine and you're sure to find it perks up and gets back to a healthy green.
Bugs and insects can wreak havoc on your lawn, and if you find your lawn is suffering even though you're feeding and watering it, you might have a pest problem. Chemical treatments or turf replacement are some of the most common ways to combat pests.
