Lawn care

We built a new home in Parkersburg after recovery from the 2008 tornado. We decided to seed our lawn rather than sod. Last year we had a problem with grubs which has made the grass be in clumps and very rough. We hope there is something that can be done rather than starting over and would very much like to have someone come and discuss our options. Is that possible? Thanks so very much for your attention given this concern.

Pencil Point Junipers

We have 7 pencil point junipers. 5 of them are on the South side against our house, so fairly protected from the wind. The other 2 are on the North side of the house in an unprotected area. They are 2 years old. Last Spring, the 5 by the front had pretty significant browning, which I trimmed some of these branches off. Now there are holes where I trimmed as it didn't grow back there. Is it normal for these to brown in the Spring? I think the 5 turned mostly green eventually last summer. But the 2 on the N side look half dead. Like half of the tree (on the South side) is dead brown, the other half green. Could this be caused by the wind? Lack of water? Location? Too much sun exposure? They are beautiful trees and I don't want to part with them, but they don't look very nice...especially on our front walkway.
