We have a house and the lawn is in this state. There are brown patches, there are barren areas, there are weeds.

What are the steps to remedy this and 'bring' the grass back?

FYI: We live in Los Angeles.

That's a Magnolia tree in our yard.

We've been just manually weeding. We've also started watering every other day for about a week.

brown lawn

  • Can you tell us what you have tried? Also what kind of tree is that?

  • Looks like drought and cutting the grass too short - were you not watering before this happened? Has the weather been hot and dry for a while? What type of grass is it?

  • Didn't water it for months and we get temps sometimes in the 80s. We don't get a lot of rain. I started watering it last week. I don't know the type of grass. I'll post close up pictures later. We do get weeds that grow.
