Brown Patches In Lawn

Anonymous added on May 30, 2011 | Answered

I have an increasing number of dead patches in my lawn. I can't lift the grass up like described with grubs. We have found some green worms in the soil to the side of the lawn. I don't know what they are. They look a little like a tomato worm. I have been feeding my lawn heavily with high nitrogen fertilizer, as my soil test last year showed that my ground is severely nitrogen starved. Have I over fed it?
