Unfortunately lawn diseases can leave your healthy lawn under the weather. Maintaining a healthy lawn – one free of Red Thread and other lawn diseases – can be a real challenge for our area.
Common Lawn Diseases:
A fungal organism, red thread produces red threadlike material in your lawn. It’s not very pleasing to the eye and is often caused by improper watering, poor soil and poor grass.
Leaf spots are caused by fungi and often lead to brown patches in your lawn. There is a melting-out that is associated with leaf spots and occurs during hot, dry weather. Your lawn may look dried out during this time.
Evidence of dollar spot are small circles of brown on your lawn. It can be mistaken for grass discolored by dog urine but may occur if you don’t feed and water your lawn enough.
Brown patch is a fast moving lawn disease that is caused by fungus. It’s considered a summer lawn disease, becoming more pronounced once temperatures start climbing. Starting in small brown circles, brown patch will grow and expand rapidly.
