Understanding Yellow Grass
Even if you don’t know much in regards to taking care of your lawn, you know that grass should be green and any other color means there is a problem. You’re right! In truth, grass is only yellow for a little while, but this isn’t good news. It’s only yellow temporarily because it’s on its way to turning brown. Your grass is dying!
“Why is my grass turning yellow?” The answer to this question is that a lack of nutrients is the most common reason for a yellow lawn. Nutrients such as nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus are essential to lawn health. In the type of grass that we use for California lawns, it’s usually an iron deficiency or nitrogen deficiency that leads to grass blades losing their color and developing yellow spots. Think of these yellow spots as a cry for help!
Other potential causes for yellow grass include extreme heat, using too much fertilizer, too much dog urine in concentrated spots, and cutting your grass too low. As well, excessive use of pesticides and herbicides can scorch your lawn and lead to yellow grass.
Can Yellow Grass Turn Green Again?
Yes! In most cases, you can turn yellow grass back to green and once again have a lovely lawn. We will work with you to diagnose the problem and develop the correct next steps. It’s possible you simply need better lawn care, but we can also handle curing lawn diseases. Deep watering your grass can also help flush excess chemicals and nitrates through the soil and away from grass roots. We will always follow the proper fertilizing schedule for your type of grass to fix yellowing caused by over fertilizing and under fertilizing.
