Q.Dead Grass Killed by Grubs

Anonymous added on April 16, 2011 | Answered

I have a large area of side lawn that is totally brown (I think dead), possibly killed by grubs. Is there anything I can do now in the spring to bring this grass back? What do I do to get it green?

You'll first need to take care of the grub problem, then you can focus on fixing the grass by either re-sowing the dead area or re-sodding. You'll also have to fertilize it. Occasionally, the dead grass will come back on its own following grub and fertilizing treatment.
