The pretty yellow blossoms are charming in low doses, but it doesn't take long for dandelions to take over an entire lawn.

When it comes to dandelions: getting rid of them before they go to seed and fortifying your lawn against further infestation are the key elements.
Crab grass is a subtle enemy, showing up a few blades at a time, but it can quickly crowd out your entire lawn, if left alone. However, crab grass has a shorter growing season than other grass varieties. So, it can be kept at bay by strengthening your lawn; leaving no room for crab grass to move in.

Turfgrass insects are those that attack the roots or blades of your grass. Root eaters, like grubs, can destroy a lawn if they are left unchecked. You don’t see them on the surface, but brown blades of grass and loose soil are tell-tale signs that they’re gorging just under the surface. Regular pest control for your lawn keeps grubs and other problem bugs at bay.
