These grass bubbles tend to be caused by trapped water on rocky or poor soils. This can happen with fertile soils in waterlogged areas as well.To address grass bubbles in your lawn, start by aerating the soil to improve drainage and reduce compaction. Consider dethatching to remove excess organic matter and mow at the correct height to prevent stress on the grass. Proper irrigation practices, including deep watering and watering early in the morning, can help prevent excess moisture buildup. Additionally, fertilize appropriately and address any low-lying areas where water tends to accumulate. If the problem persists, then you may need the assistance of your closest local extension service.
