Thatch is a thick layer of decomposed plant matter that builds up under the roots of grass. It causes brown patches in your lawn during the summer. In order to know if you have thatch in your lawn, dig a two-inch deep chunk out of the grass. If your grass has more than a 3/4 inch of spongy thatch between the grass and the beginning of the soil, then it is time to dethatch.
In order to know if your lawn is being affected by pests, pull a patch of lawn out. If it’s invested with pests then it will pull easily. Pests come when the lawn is over watered, over fertilized or neglected. Keep your lawn healthy but don’t overdo it.
If you have a dog, it could be the reason why you have brown patches in your lawn. Dog urine causes brown spots throughout the grass. To fix this water your grass thoroughly and try to teach your dog to go in a different place.
The brown patches in your lawn could be as simple as your sprinklers not reaching far enough. It could be that one of your sprinklers is broken and you haven’t noticed or maybe you don’t have enough sprinklers placed for the size of your lawn. The damage can be caused by environmental wear, product lifespan or faulty installation. A properly maintained sprinkler system can last for many years.
