Hi all, I have raccoons completely destroying my lawn (Southern California, suburbs). To the point that I cant reseed/replant the grass as it is guaranteed to be dug up before it is hardy enough. I am not sure what to do. Have any of you encountered this problem?

I understand they dig for grubs? I apply grub control every year, so even if I have some it cant be many. What do I do? I understand that fences wont keep them out. Can I lay something over the freshly seeded grass (like some sort of mesh or something) that would prevent them from digging it all up? I have about 50 sq feet of my lawn just completely destroyed. They come at night, sometimes they wont come for a month, then sometimes they come every night.

Grass type is Dwarf Type Tall Fescue (Marathon 2)

Not my photo, but it looks just like this:
