Here in Virginia, grubs are common pests that can cause serious damage to your grass if they infest your lawn. If grubs have infested your lawn and caused damage to your turf, there are some lawn care services that you can schedule to help reverse the damage that they caused. Lawn fertilization treatments will provide your turf with the nutrients it needs to recover from grub damage, and aeration will make it easier for those nutrients to reach the roots of your grass. You can also schedule overseeding to fill in any bare or patchy areas that were caused as a result of grub damage with new grass! If your lawn fell victim to grubs this year, you should make sure to schedule preventative grub control treatments next year to prevent them from infesting your lawn again!

Lawn fertilization treatments will supply your grass with the nutrients it needs to recover from grub damage.

One of the best ways to help your lawn recover from grub damage is by scheduling lawn fertilization treatments. These treatments are designed to supply your grass with all of the nutrients it needs to recover from grub damage. The nutrients that these treatments contain will help your turf develop strong roots, get its beautiful green color back, and help your turf withstand other stressors throughout the year!

Most lawn fertilization treatments contain 3 main nutrients - nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.

Ensure your grass has access to everything it needs to recover from grub damage by scheduling aeration.

Because grubs cause damage to your turf by feasting on its roots, you'll need to strengthen the roots of your grass to help it recover. That's where aeration comes in. This service is designed to loosen compacted soil and create channels in your soil that nutrients and other resources like air, water, and sunlight can use to reach the roots of your grass. With improved access to these nutrients and resources, your grass will have everything it needs to recover from grub damage.

If grubs left parts of your lawn bare or patchy, you can fill in those areas with new grass via overseeding.

As grubs feast on the roots of your grass, they can cause extensive damage to your lawn, resulting in a lawn that is littered with bare or patchy areas. If that's the case for your lawn, you'll want to schedule an overseeding service. This service involves spreading grass seeds across your lawn, which can fill in any bare or patchy areas with new grass!

Prevent grubs from destroying your lawn next year by scheduling preventative treatments.

If grubs infested your lawn this year, there's a good chance they'll be back next year as well. To prevent a repeat of this year, you should schedule a preventative grub control treatment next year. This type of treatment is designed to sink down into the soil and eliminate any grubs before they have the chance to start feeding on the roots of your grass. However, timing is crucial when it comes to these treatments. You'll want to schedule this treatment in June, which is right before grubs start causing problems here in Virginia. By being proactive in your approach to grub control, you can stop these pests from damaging your lawn!
