Are Underground Rocks & Debris Causing Brown Spots in Your Lawn?

Nothing sticks out like a sore thumb more than brown spots in your lawn. But what is the cause? While there are a few reasons for discoloring of your lawn, one of them is due to buried rocks and debris. Sometimes these particles can cause brown spots in the same spot, year after year especially during times of heat stress and drought.

So how do you remove the underground rock and debris? Removal of Debris involves actually digging up the debris, replacing it with at least 6 inches of topsoil, followed by either sodding or seeding the area.

Seeding is a tool we can use to thicken bare or thin areas. Grasses like tall fescue don’t spread well and need seeding to help damaged areas recover. The best time of year to seed is from September 1 to October 15 or call us at (913) 451-4664 to discuss your situation.
