Signs of Moles in the Lawn
 

Moles can cause damage to a landscape, including turfgrass, small annual plants, and paver patios or walkways.

Regardless of the type of turfgrass you have, one of the most important things you can do to help it grow healthy and green while minimizing weeds and fungal diseases is to mow it at its optimum height.

Most Bermudagrass lawns have areas that are thin or bare, and naturally Crownover Green clients want to know if they should overseed or spot seed to make these areas thick and healthy like the rest of their lawn.
 
Before you decide what to do about the bare or thin areas you should first determine if your grass has adequate sunlight.
