Mad About Lawns

Scorched Lawn

When it comes to maintaining a healthy lawn, it’s important to use the right amount of fertilizers and weedkillers. However, many homeowners make the mistake of applying too much, which can lead to scorched or burnt lawns. This is a common problem that Mad About Lawns sees on a regular basis.

Too much fertilizer can cause the grass to turn yellow or brown, giving the lawn a burnt or scorched lawn appearance.  Additionally, when too much fertilizer is applied to a lawn, the excess nutrients can cause the grass to grow too quickly and become too thick. This can lead to a buildup of thatch, which can suffocate the roots of the grass and prevent it from receiving the water and nutrients it needs to survive.


When too much weedkiller is applied, it can cause damage to the grass and other desirable plants in your lawn. It can cause the grass to turn yellow or brown, and may even kill off large sections of the lawn.

At Mad About Lawns, our team of experts is experienced in identifying and correcting problems caused by over-fertilization and over-use of weedkillers. We can diagnose the problem and take steps to remedy it, such as by removing thatch, aerating the soil, and reseeding the lawn.

It’s important to note that it’s better to be cautious and not to over-apply fertilizers and weedkillers.
