Fungus and Disease Control
Lawn and turf diseases can occur when weather and/or lawn practices
favor disease development. Very often, hot and humid weather
contributes to diseases. Excess moisture, such as is provided from
watering a lawn in the afternoon instead of the early morning hours can
cause diseases as well.
Luckily, lawn diseases can be treated with a few different approaches. Sometimes an application of fertilizer can give the grass what it needs to outgrow the disease. Changing lawn practices such as watering amounts and times and cutting the grass at the appropriate length (3-3 1/2″) can also help with lawn fungus. If neither of these methods will help, sometimes a lawn fungicide treatment is necessary and will eliminate the problem.
Some of the most common Fungus's in your area are: Dollar Spot, Large Patch, Brown Patch, Leaf Spot, etc.
