    any lawn advice for a tech?

    Have noticed my lawn dying in spots and now more prevelent.

    I have now noticed little clovers seem to be thriving wherever the grass is dying.

    We have had a lot of rain with below average temps here.

    SBK do you have a dog? If not look under the grass for grubs. If I get it right I'm putting lawn care troubleshooting on my resume. I believe the clovers are there because they are storing excess nitrogen not used by dead grass or excess pet urine. If there was a condenser out there I would be more apt to suggest HVAC Tech urine haha

    walk behind drop spreader with a couple of bags of top soil and mulch that lawn if your not doing it already...water midweek in the evennings not the sun of the day.if you mulch the neutriants from the cuttings will tighten up the grass and the top soil will juice up the roots..drop the soil lite rake in and then mow it.

    Sounds like dollar weed which invades lawns and thrives in overwatered soil. Scott's has a granular spread for that, google it.

    You never answer what kinda grass, being you live in Fla. I am guessing Burmuda or St Aug. My local landscape supply has documents at the counter for each grass with reccomended fertilizer, weed killer etc as well as when to apply. this year I followed it and my Burmuda did a 100% turnaround. My biggest issue was crab grass, it took over and shadeded out my grass.
    It's hard to stop a Trane. but I have made one helluva living keeping them going.

    Because we have better things to do with our weekends!
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
