Do you have an area of your lawn where personnel are constantly walking? Maybe not just personnel, but you also have equipment going through that area all the time? Are there all sorts of personnel walking in the same areas…personnel coming in and out of the house, in and out of automobiles, delivery personnel or postal personnel? Does your mower or other equipment have to go a certain route on your turfgrass every time? This is what I call a “high traffic” area.
For example, at the gate to my backyard, there is an area that has a difficult time growing turf.
