Damage to lawns caused by badgers

Hi So as the title suggests, some of the lawns on a commercial site we manage have come under attack from badgers/crows.In a relatively short space of time they have made quite a mess and I'm trying to put together a bit of a plan in terms of managing it. These lawns are very mossy,making it easy for them to dig whatever it is that's attracting them there.I'm wondering if they are digging up grubs and whether this is something that could be treated so as to discourage them? Any ideas?

Seaweed meal in borders

 Evening all. I've only been using for a short while now but have been impressed with the results of liquid seaweed on my lawns. I am looking into using seaweed meal in borders.  We manage some quite large herbaceous borders and currently use a mix of manure, poultry manure and fish blood and bone as required.  Does anybody use seaweed meal? When do you apply, have you seen good results etc? In principle this seems like a very good product to me…
