If your lawn looked like this after the winter thaw, you may have a vole problem. The Handyguys will discuss this pest on our next podcast.
Voles are rodents that spend most of their time under ground. They venture from their tunnels under the cover of snow and do the sort of damage you see here. I was able to take care of my vole with a snap mouse trap and a shovel. The mole did damage to about a 8′ x 8′ section of my lawn. I repaired the damage in the spring with some soil and grass seed.
