Fungus in the Lawn
Summertime is when many lawn's fungi are active. Constant moisture (including humidity) promotes common summer lawn diseases including red thread, summer patch, brown patch and dollar spot. You can manage these diseases with proper cultural practices in your lawn care program including a balanced fertilizer program, proper watering and mowing. You can help your situation by not watering your lawn in the evening as this helps to hold humidity at high levels next to your grass plants for an extended period of time. Water deeply and infrequently, set your mower cutting height high and apply a light feeding, preferably with an organic lawn product such asLove Your Lawn-Love Your Soil or Black Beauty Organic Lawn Fertilizer during summer months. If necessary, Lawn Fungus Control is available to treat and control many lawn diseases. Water in after application. Repeat in one month if needed for worse cases.
Many lawn fungi develop under moist, still conditions. Thin out trees and shrubs to allow air to circulate all over your lawn, and plant shade-tolerant grasses under trees. Love Your Lawn-Love Your Soil will improve air flow all over your lawn and allow moisture to drain properly. This can be applied on the same day as Lawn Fungus Control.
