Natural grass is prone to a variety of illnesses and other problems, which may convert your lawn from a beautiful landscape feature to an unattractive and irritating burden.
Viruses that affect turf grass
Brown patch is a problem for cool-season turf, particularly in the early summer when nighttime temperatures are about 65-70 degrees. Your lawn is in peril by the time you see the brown spots.
Pythium blight is a kind of water mold (really multiple varieties) that thrives in humid environments (poor drainage and/or air circulation, wet shaded areas). It results in grey, wet areas.
You may notice pink snow mold if you reside at a higher elevation and get snow (or gray snow mold). Towards the end of the winter, you’ll notice watery-looking patches with reddish (or gray) edges. The spots turn brown when the circumstances dry up. Pink snow molds inflict greater damage than gray snow molds.
Summer patch might resemble brown patch, although it only appears in the late summer.
Mildew with a powdery appearance. You might connect powdery mildew with other landscaping plants, especially if your garden is shaded, but powdery mildew can also affect natural grass in shady locations.
If a neighboring garden has host plants, rust spores can infect grass blades. Rust is more common in the fall, when the weather is moist and cold.
Slime mold grows when the environment is warm and wet. This isn’t a sickness (it doesn’t harm the grass), but it does look bad.
Fungi are responsible for all of these illnesses. Your grass, on the other hand, might be unhealthy for various reasons.
What is the solution? CHEMICALS, in most cases.
Symptoms of disease may resemble issues such as over- or under-watering, nutritional imbalance, and so on. So, before you try to treat whatever ails your natural grass, you’ll need a good diagnosis. In some situations, a soil assay will be required.
Fungicides are typically fairly efficient in eradicating the above-mentioned fungal illnesses, although application timing can be problematic, and you may need to apply numerous times.
Insecticides can be used to get rid of grubs, white flies, and other insects.
If the problem is nutritional, fertilizers can assist, and healthy grass is better equipped to resist disease.
Long grass blades, collected leaves, and other debris offer an excellent habitat for the mold to develop, thus snow molds are generally caused by inadequate winterizing methods. Late-season mowing and cleaning are required to prevent this.
Sorry about that, but fairy rings are extremely difficult to get rid of.
