    Take a look at these common lawn problems that can be very destructive towards your garden. If you need help with your lawn, give The Home Mechanics a call today!

    The biggest challenge in regards to good lawn care is correctly identifying your lawn’s problems. Subsequently, it is also important that you implement the appropriate treatments before your problems spiral out of control.

    Here are 4 of the most common lawn problems and easiest ways to identify and resolve them.

    • Lack of water. There will be a bluish, grayish shade to your lawn due to improper hydration.  The grass will be turning unto itself and leisurely strolls across the lawn will leave foot imprints because of the loss elasticity.  The immediate answer to this problem is to deluge your lawn with at least an inch of water.  Get your sprinkler system going and place a can near in the water’s path.  Once the can is has filled up with an inch of water, discontinue the sprinkler.  Remember to water your lawn regularly, especially during the hot summer months.
    • Over-abundance of water. Water saturation of your lawn is harmful and can appear in a myriad of ways.  The lawn might turn yellow because of a lack of oxygen or nutrients.  Nutrient leaching is often an overlooked problem.  A surplus of water is frequently a signal of the following problems: poor draining soil, a layer of top heavy clay, or a bad location like at the bottom of a hill.  Improve your soil’s foundation and water flow by adding moisture-absorbing compost.  Keep in mind how much rain you get so you don’t over water your lawn as well.
