Lawn Disease Control Applications
There are several lawn diseases that are problematic in Central Missouri. Some are relatively harmless, while others can destroy your entire lawn in a very short time. Most lawn diseases are caused by fungi that live off your grass and are spread by foot, water, and air. They often affect your lawn in spots, circles, patches, and/or strange colors ranging from brown, to yellow, to red. The blades of grass may show tiny black spots, grey or brown lesions, or yellowing. Lawn fungus is most common when we have conditions of high humidity and high temperatures. Having poor drainage will also increase the probability of having diseases. Following a regular fertilization schedule along with fungicide applications is the best way to rid your lawn of fungus. If you recognize any of the fungi shown in this picture, it may be time to give us a call!
