Call an exterminator, get the grubs taken care of, then replant the grass. I know it seems like a lot since you've already put in so much effort but if you keep trying to fix the grass while there's still grubs it's just not gonna grow very well if at all

I know an excellent plumber in overalls and a red hat who specializes in stomping on shrooms and clearing pipes of biting plants. I'm sure he can handle some grass and grub.

If it were me, I would let nature take its course and wait for the grubs to move on. But I get that most people wouldn't want to wait long for their lawn to look nice again. It's better than having pesticides near your house in my opinion, though.

The thing is the grubs won't go away. They make grub babies who grow up and make more grub babies. If you don't get them off the lawn they'll just stay there and you'll have a grub infested dirt pile for a lawn

If the grass is dead and the grubs are exposed, they won't have anything to eat and they will be vulnerable to prey such as birds and moles and they will move on. Then you can plant grass with more extensive roots that won't be as susceptible to grubs in the future. It takes more time, but, like I said, I think it's better than having pesticides in your yard.

This is good advice. I mean, it isn't going to solve either one of the problems, but it's something you can do :D

Sometimes ladybugs are a good, natural alternative! You can buy some online and then release them at dusk in your garden. They don't fly at night, so they will sit there all night and eat all the grubs and aphids without hurting the grass!

Ok, crazy idea, but first you let the grubs destroy your lawn, and wait until they move on, and then take the grass out of the gutter and replant it into your yard. What could possibly go wrong?
