Lawn diseases are caused by either pathogens or mycelium. There are a number of grass diseases that can affect lawns in the UK.  If the fungus is not properly diagnosed and treated, it will spread and cause extensive harm to your lawn. A precise diagnosis is required to ensure that the proper lawn fungus is treated. Our local lawn treatment expert will visit at a time convenient to you and carry out a full assessment of the health and condition of your lawn and advise a suitable lawn care programme.

The most common lawn diseases are:

Red Thread Disease

The fungus Laetisaria Fuciformis causes red thread, a fungal lawn disease. The disease’s effects can be evident all year, but especially in the spring/summer months and/or during periods of excessive humidity. The disease is most noticeable after periods of rain, especially near the end of summer when humidity levels are high.

If your lawn has been seriously affected by the disease, your local lawn treatment expert can apply an efficient treatment of specialised fungicide formula to help manage and even eradicate fungal grass diseases while also avoiding reinfection.

Lawn Fungus and Mould

Microdochium Nivale is a fungus that causes the disease known as Fusarium, a common grass disease. It’s most common in finer turf environments like bowling greens, although it can also be found on lawns, especially after lengthy snow cover. Snow Mould may be the name given to it in such cases. Therefore, a contact fungicide is used to control the growth of this disease. If Fusarium is active during the spring and/or summer, a systemic fungicide is applied to help control the growth of this disease. These products are not available in garden centres and stores.

Dry Patch

While the causes are numerous, fungus on the grass — or more precisely, the water-repellent compounds that the fungus releases in the soil — is regarded to be one of the most common.

Keeping lawn thatch under control is one method for preventing dry patch. If there is too much lawn thatch, the fungus will break down the dead material and deposit water-resistant compounds. Lawn Scarifying, Aeration, specialist hydrophobic soil treatment and targeted seasonal treatments will all help eliminate dry patch.

Brown / Yellow Patches

Your grass may turn yellow or brown owing to a variety of factors, including illness, dormancy, animal urine or simply nutrient deficiency. If not kept in check, this disease will cause yellow or light brown patches to scatter across your formerly green lawn.

We help you can diagnose the source of brown lawn patches or weak, sparse grass, and we will recommend a suitable treatment programme to cure the problem.
