Does your lawn appear to have circular or irregular whitish-gray or whitish-pink patches? Known as gray or pink snow mold, this disease lives in the thatch layer of your lawn, and begins growing in the wintertime, so you’ll usually notice it in early spring. Let your local lawn care experts take care of it right away, and advise you on how to prevent it.
If you’ve found a bunch of dollar-coin shaped spots on your lawn, ranging in size from 1-6 inches, you may be a victim of dollar spot disease. It’s a fungus which kills your lawn all the way down to the roots and appears in the spring.
Whether you see dead areas in your lawn, or see a pinking or reddish looking thread, it may be a fungus named red thread. This fungus can kill grass, but often simply attacks and destroys leaves, leaf sheaths and stems. An experienced lawn care company can prevent red thread through maintenance procedures.
Noticing a redness or rustiness on the blades of your grass? It may be rust, a fungus known for weakening your lawn and making it more susceptible to other diseases. Usually showing up in the late summer or fall, get in touch with a lawn care specialist to remove thatch and take other preventative measures to protect your lawn.
Seeing brown patches in your lawn? A small brown patch may be nothing to worry about, and can be caused by mowing too deeply or too frequently. But if brown patches appear in great numbers or are large, it may be caused by grubs, excessive thatch or a fungal disease, all of which can be aided through expert local lawn care.
