Fungal disease in your lawn can appear in many different forms and it is important to keep an eye out for changes in your lawn and know what to look for.
Fungal disease will appear as dead or dying patches of grass that typically have smooth outlines. Depending on the variety of fungus, these browning areas can look like everything from a mower blade scalped the lawn to an intricate maze-like pattern throughout the lawn. Heavy and continual rains, moderate spring and fall time temperatures, and stress significantly increase the likelihood of a fungal outbreak in your lawn.
Importantly, fungal disease will spread rapidly often times destroying the entire lawn if left untreated.
When dealing with a lawn disease, it is always recommended to hire a professional. First, the type of disease is typically difficult to diagnose. Second, most of the products that effectively treat fungal disease are regulated and only available to lawn care professionals. And third, there are often underlying health problems in your lawn that led up to the disease.
