Understanding Lawn Diseases

During the summer, the combination of warm temperatures and high humidity creates a breeding ground for various lawn diseases, with fungal infections standing as a significant threat to lawns across the United States. Vigilant monitoring is essential to combat these diseases, particularly "brown patch" and "dollar spot," which are notably prevalent in our region. These fungal invaders thrive in such conducive conditions, launching their assault on the grass by breaking down plant tissue. As these diseases take hold, they progressively consume the living tissue of the grass plants, leading to irreversible damage and, ultimately, the grass's demise. Early detection and treatment are crucial in preventing these fungal diseases from gaining a foothold, ensuring your lawn remains healthy and vibrant throughout the season.

Rhizoctonia “Brown Patch”

Rhizoctonia, commonly known as "brown patch," is a fungal disease that thrives in warm, humid conditions, typically affecting lawns during the summer months. It manifests as circular patches of brown, dying grass that can range in size, often surrounded by a ring of dark, water-soaked grass. The disease attacks the grass blades and roots, leading to weakened, thinned areas susceptible to further stress and damage. Effective management includes proper watering, nutrients, aeration, and fungicidal treatments to prevent its spread and protect the lawn's health.

Clarireedia “Dollar Spot”

Clarireedia, often referred to as 'dollar spot,' is a fungal disease characterized by small, circular, sunken patches of straw-colored grass, about the size of a dollar coin, hence its name. It affects a wide range of grass types and thrives under conditions of high humidity, low soil moisture, and nutrient-deficient soils. The disease creates a distinctive appearance of tiny, bleached-out spots on the grass blades, which can coalesce into larger areas of damage under severe infestations. Managing Clarireedia effectively requires maintaining adequate soil moisture, balanced fertilization, and, the application of fungicides to prevent its spread and ensure the lawn remains healthy and vibrant.
