Lawn Diseases

Several types of lawn diseases are common in the greater Atlanta area. Patches of brown or unhealthy looking grass can be a sign of a lawn disease such as lawn fungus. TurfPride Lawncare in Kennesaw, GA offers lawn disease prevention and diagnosis services. While it is ideal to treat your lawn to prevent disease, we also provide treatments for lawns that are already afflicted.

Fescue Lawn Diseases

If You Have a Fescue Lawn…The worst offender is Brown Patch which appears  as increasingly large sizes of dead grass which will continue unchecked until your lawn is completely dead. The cause is a fungus which thrives in warm temperatures and lots of moisture.The best course of action is to apply a preventative fungicide beginning in May.

If the disease has already appeared, curative treatments are available. However, they:

  • Are more expensive
  • Require a greater number of applications
  • Halt the spread of disease but can’t change the appearance of the dead areas until the following season

Bermuda/Zoysia Lawn Diseases
