What are chafer grubs?
Chafer grubs are the larvae of chafer beetles. The grubs live in soil and eat plant roots, which may cause problems if you have chafer grubs in your lawn.

We recently provided a lawn scarification service for a customer in Caerleon. As a result, the lawn's appearance has visibly improved - take a look at these before and after photos!

As you can see, this lawn used to look a little bit patchy, but we worked our magic and it's looking a lot greener now!
As we've discussed previously (see What Makes a Plant a Weed?), there's no hard and fast rule to say which plants are weeds and which aren't. The word 'weed' can refer to any plant that's growing in a place where it isn't wanted.
Of course, some plants make weeds of themselves more often than others - see our list of common UK garden weeds for some of the most widespread examples.
After a very hot and dry spring, some parts of the UK have seen heavy rain over the past few days. There's a good chance that your lawn is rather wet right now - so what does this mean for your regular mowing schedule?
We've already explained why you shouldn't mow your lawn during periods of dry weather. But what about wet weather? Is it OK to cut the grass when it's been raining?
Here's the short answer: no, you should not mow your lawn after rain. If possible, wait until the grass is dry before you attempt to cut it. (Once you can walk across your lawn without getting your shoes wet, you can get the mower out.)
