Lawn Fungus is Preventable and Treatable Infographic

It's true, no one wants a pesky lawn fungus to destroy their perfect lawn, but fortunately, there are ways to prevent and treat lawn fungus. And keep your lawn green. This infographic breaks down what you need to know. 

What steps can I take to prevent lawn fungus?

Lawn fungus can be prevented through a variety of methods. Some of the methods for preventing lawn fungus include proper fertilization, lawn aeration, proper mowing techniques, applying a preventative fungicide, proper irrigation, quality grass seed, and proper soil amendments. 

How does proper watering prevent the spread of fungus in the lawn?

Watering too late in the evening can lead to fungus growth overnight. By watering earlier in the morning the water will dry off before mold and fungus can take hold in the nighttime. 

How can cutting the lawn wrong lead to disease in the lawn?

Cutting the grass improperly can lead to disease for a few reasons. For one, cutting grass while it is wet can lead to poor quality of cut that allows fungus and mold to make their way into the grass blade. Similarly, cutting grass when it is too high can lead to tearing the grass rather than cutting. Torn grass is more susceptible to disease and illness. 

How can I select a grass that can withstand fungus and disease?

By selecting a quality grass seed you can create a fungus-resistant lawn. Quality grasses such as Kentucky Blue Grass are less susceptible to disease. On the other hand, St. Augustine can get brown patches if improperly treated. 

By following the proper practices laid out in this infographic you can create a lawn that is resistant to lawn disease.
