Started doing some raking today and found white grubs. Hundreds of them. My theory is the crane flies got to the soil last year layed the eggs for these demon spawn and now they are jawing down on the grass killing it worse than the drought. Never had the grubs before as we always had a decent and lush lawn.
Plan is to till the really bad spots, level, slit seed or broadcast spread, roll, water and wait.
Questions - what do I do about the grubs? Is rolling a must? Do I roll before or after putting the seed down?
Going to try replanting this year and if it doesnt go well - probably call it a loss and till/sod next year.
