lawn care questions/problems
Hi - I am in the Poconos (Stroudsburg Area) and have some questions about lawn care. We moved into this house last year in March and the lawn was pretty good. There was crabgrass and some weeds but it wasn;t bad. In the fall/early (warm) winter - the dog had torn up the grass when running.
This year we were turning the dirt a little with a bow rake to seed and I started to notice grubs. the grass last year never turned brown like I normally see with grubs. And after reading some of the forums they say that they are from Japanese Beetles. We didn't have a beetle problem last year.
We are not sure what to do?? We were going to try to seed a little and use a starte rfertilizer - but don;t know what to do about the grubs. Is it too late? Do I have to wait til the beetles emerge? Can I seed now and then do grub-ex like stuff after they emerge?
Please help a new homeowner!! I have already told my husband that it is suggested to resedd in fall and he is insisting on doing it now.
How can i control these grubs?? and get a healthy looking lawn??
Thanks in Advance!
