Lawn care general, manage pests
Most problems in lawns are not caused by pests, such as insects or disease-causing pathogens. Damage is more likely the result of poor turfgrass selection or improper maintenance practices. The Healthy Lawn Guide will help you diagnose your problems and determine whether a pest is the likely cause.
Providing proper care and using an appropriate turfgrass species can prevent the majority of lawn problems
