Also, I woke up this morning to tons of little holes (about 1 inch by 1 inch) in my front yard. Is this a skunk looking for grubs? I'm in Chicago area and its been a bit cool. The holes aren’t tunnels, and I simply place the disturbed grass back over the holes. I’m curious if it’ll grow back, and if I should take any action. Thoughts?

If I were you my focus would be on fundamentals... My recommendation would be to get a soil analysis (make sure it is Logan labs) and get on a soil remediation plan. As soon as you understand the soil chemistry you will be better shape to improve the soil chemistry, strengthen the grass and then look at more tactical options. Looking at the pics, it also seems that trimming trees raise the canopy a bit around the yard is always a good idea. This is a marathon, so patience is best. Resist the urge to start throwing the kitchen sink at your yard. There is a ton of good info on here, so read and learn.
I'm guessing that your holes are squirells getting ready for winter. I have a lot of squirrels going crazy right now and lots of small holes. Think of it as free soil aeration!
Good luck with it!
