Pictures attached, I assume I have grubs, and last fall or something some kind of rodent has gone digging for them. Last summer/fall this area was thick green grass, no weeds. I am someone that is very picky about the condition of my lawn, I have in ground sprinkler system, I have always used lawn care companies. Raked the grass and clumps of dead grass came off these areas, and this is what it uncovered. The rest of my lawn appears like it is alright. House is 5 years old, never had a problem till now. What is my best option to deal with this, lay top soil in the problem areas and spread grass sead, or tear up damaged areas and re-sod?

We have repaired alot of lawns that look like that.

If you want a perfect lawn again first, level ground and remove all grass and roots. Second, Grub control put down on whole lawn (Double the recommended amount). Third, Lay sod. DONE.

Just keep putting grub control on lawn 1-2 times a year.
