Brown patches on your lawn is undeniably an eyesore, but have you asked yourself whether you brought it upon your yard? You might have, especially when you have a dull mower or your mower blade is set too low. Using dull mower blades, or cutting the grass too short, can cause damage and gradual death to the grass on your lawn. To avoid cutting your grass too short or damaging them altogether, you can always turn to Noblesville, Indiana lawn care experts for help. Chemicals such as gasoline, fertilizer, herbicides, and pesticides can also cause damage to your lawn. For one, an incorrectly applied fertilizer or strong insect repellents can burn the grass. At times, however, your pets might be at fault—and dogs are the most common culprits. A dog’s urine contains a high concentration of nitrogen, which burns your grass the way too much fertilizer does, and the spot where your pet relieved himself will eventually appear brown on the center with green on the edges.
