Lawn Fungus Treatment & Disease Control Services

There are many types of fungus and diseases that can affect your lawn and yard. That’s why it’s important to get a professional diagnosis and treatment plan to protect your property.

Some common fungal diseases that can infect lawns include dollar spot, brown patch, red thread, Fusarium blight, and mold. Yard diseases such as anthracnose, southern blight, take-all patch, leaf spot, rusts can also be treated by professionals.

Lawn Fungus & Treatment Methods

Most fungus and disease problems can be treated with either chemical or organic fungicides. Professionals have the experience and expertise to choose the right fungicide for the specific problem you are experiencing, and they will also know how to apply it.

Disease Prevention

You’ve worked so hard to maintain a good-looking lawn, don’t let it all go to waste! Protecting your lawn from insects and disease today helps prevent future destruction tomorrow. A lot of the time, the disease can be avoided if your lawn is being properly tended to.

There are a few simple things you can do to help prevent lawn fungus and disease:

1. Keep your lawn mowed short and make sure the blades of your mower are sharp. A closely cropped lawn will be less attractive to pests and will be cooler, which also helps to discourage fungal growth.

2. Aerate your lawn regularly. This will help promote good drainage and reduce moisture levels, which can lead to fungal growth.

3. Apply a thick layer of organic mulch around trees and shrubs in your yard. The mulch will help retain moisture and suppress weed growth, both of which can contribute to the development of lawn fungus and disease.

Fungal Diseases Are Among The Most Common

Fungal diseases are among the most common problems that affect lawns and yards. They can cause extensive damage to plants, making them look unsightly and often leading to their death.

There are a number of ways to help prevent fungal diseases from affecting your lawn or yard. One of the most important is to keep the area well-maintained and free of debris, which can provide a breeding ground for fungi. Make sure to water plants regularly and evenly, and avoid over-watering as this can also lead to disease problems.

You can also help protect plants by using fungicide sprays or powders as needed, especially during times when conditions are conducive to fungus growth.

Avoid Lawn Diseases With Consistent Care

The best way to prevent lawn disease is with consistent care. Fertilization, weed control, lawn pest control, and more should be a regular part of your lawn care routine. If your lawn is suffering from any of these lawn diseases or more, let the experts at Blades of Green help kick it back into gear! With our lawn care program, you can enjoy a beautiful and healthy lawn all year round!
