    I have a yard with dead grass though the yard, mixed in with the green grass. There is much more green, but a significant amount of "brown" dead grass. It appears to be grubs. I pulled up a piece of the dead part, but didn't see anything but dirt underneath.

    My plan is to dethatch the lawn, apply an anti-grub treatmeant, re-seed and fertilize.

    Can someone give me some advice.
    What else could cause this browning grass?
    How long should I wait before I re-seed the lawn?

    did the dead turf come up in sheets or big chuncks with ease

    The dead turf came up in chunks, but it took a little effort to pull it out.
