Pest and Disease Control

Lawns can become vulnerable to pests and disease for many reasons.  Its important to not only treat the problem, but to also figure out what might be causing it.

Turf Pests

-Turf pests come in all shapes and sizes.  They feed on different parts of turf.  There are root-feeders found in the soil, crown and stem-feeders found in thatch, and leaf and stem-feeders found on the blades of grass.
