  • Help.........

    I've already applied 2 heavy applications of bug/grub killer with no results. Also just went out with a shovel and dug up two locations, didn't see any critters.

    This line has been there for 3 years now and it keeps getting longer every year.

    Any suggestions ? Am I being visited by some unknown beings ???

    If I'm looking at the right thing, the grass actually looks a bit darker? Have you had the soil tested? Does not look burnt from over fertilized, or burnt from animal urine. Take a close up picture. Grubs should have disturbed a greater area, not a line.

      Could it be a different type of grass that is slowly spreading? Almost looks nice and dark like Kentucky blue grass???

              Yes it's darker but also with some dead/dying grass mixed in. It also has a slower growth rate. The line almost doubled in length this year.

                The septic system idea was good, but I think the grass would not only be greener but also grow faster. A soil sample might give some answers. Did you reseed with a drop spreader? Drive any lawn machines across that area with fertilizer?

                        I'm on city sewer that runs out front. I haven't reseeded the area but it has been fertilized several times since it first appeared.

                        I've posted this on a lawn forum will see if I get any results..........

                          I didnt see that it runs completely to the trees in that other picture. How about an animal burrow coming from the direction of those trees?

                          If you dig down into the green area for a foot or so does the soil composition change?

                            I am thinking along the same line as Punky, some critter has made a home in your yard. Any signs of a burrow anywhere around those trees.

                            I see you have farm fields at your back too. The neighbors are normally quiet but sometimes very dusty.

                              Farm fields! Look for tile line terminations or places where fertilizers have easy access to your yard (shallow swales that allow drainage, e.g)
