Hello. The snow has just started to melt in my backyard and I have a serious problem. The grass is all covered with burnt spots. It looks somekind of massive infestation. If its grubs I understand you can't do anything till July. It's a serious infestation of somekind. Any suggestions what I should do now. Thank you very much for you help. I'm desparate. Millie PS It's looks awful.

Millie, I need more information. Does a dog have access to your yard? Was there any sign of damage last fall? Maybe some sort of ice melter/salt was used over the winter? Thanks.

JoanneS. No we do not have a dog. No sign of damage last fall. It was beautiful. Someone suggested "snow mold" or grubs. As snow melts the worse it looks. Thanks. Millie PS If you look here you will see how my grass looked last year. http://MilliesGarden.homestead.com/Welcome.html

Millie, what a pretty border, and yes your lawn was beautiful. Do molds make the grass look burnt? Is it too early for grubs? I don't know, you've got me stumped. The only thing I can think of, is maybe the grass wasn't overly hardy (some seeds you get at the home hardware store are not always hardy in our northern climate) and because many parts of the country didn't get a lot of snow cover, maybe it died because of the cold? Sorry, pure speculation on my part.

Thank you Joanne. That border is miniature roses with portulacas. I planted them wrong too. Rose Society has advised me to separate them in spring. I put all four minis together in the same hole. Now back to my current problem. I called couple of local nurseries and they said grubs are not active at present. It could be "winter kill", but not to do anything until spring. Thanks again for responding. Millie
