How To Diagnose Lawn Diseases

When customers complain about the poor quality of their lawn care, it’s often the lawn care provider who takes the blame. More often than not, though, it’s because there were lawn diseases present before the service even began! If you’re struggling with a lawn that just refuses to shape up, there are a few factors you should consider before trying to find a solution.

 

Many breeds of grass are likely to get a disease when they are subject to extreme temperatures. Warm season grasses will be prone to disease when temperatures are too cold, and cool season grasses are more prone to disease when the weather is too warm. Other risk factors for lawn disease include excessive dryness, overwatering, or lack of sun.

How to Tell if Your Lawn Is Diseased

There are many varieties of lawn disease, and the ones you need to look for will depend on what type of turfgrass makes up your lawn. It’s always a good idea to research your specific grass so you know how to care for your lawn and prevent disease. Some of the most common lawn diseases include:

  • Brown patch
  • Dollar spot
  • Fairy ring
