White Grubs destroying​ your lawn?

Grubs live in the root systems of plants and cause severe damage over a short period. Unfortunately, they are not easy to spot because they live beneath the grass blades, they often destroy large patches of lawn before one notices them.Symptoms/Signs

Initial damage which can be seen on lawns is the gradual thinning, discolouration and weakening of grass. This is then followed by the appearance of scattered and irregular dead patches.

What does this mean for me/my plants?

Grub feeding destroys the roots of your lawn, leaving the tops to wither and die. Lawn can become totally damaged and very expensive to repair.
