1. There Are Patches of Yellow and Brown Around The Lawn

Grass should always be green. It turns yellow and brown when it is dying. If the grass is not dying because of a season change, this is happening because the bugs are eating, gathering, and mating in your lawn. The problem will start out as a few small spots in the lawn, but it will quickly spread if the bugs are not eradicated and your yard's integrity preserved with lawn maintenance in Bergen County NJ.

2. Grass Starts Acting Like Carpet

You should not be able to easily lift up sections of your lawn and roll it up as if it were a rug you were putting away for the winter. Unfortunately, this is a warning signs bugs have gotten under the grass and eaten all of the roots. This disconnects the grass from the ground. When this happens, the grass will slowly die as it is unable to absorb nutrients and water from the ground without roots.
