Lawn Disease Control

Every lawn in Georgia, whether new or established, is susceptible to a variety of lawn diseases because of our environmental conditions.

Promoting healthy growth is the best way to prevent a severe disease outbreak. Most common lawn diseases can be avoided by optimizing maintenance and watering practices. Stressed grass is much more susceptible to disease than healthy grass. Even if a disease-causing pathogen is present, infection will not occur unless the environmental conditions are conducive to disease development. Diseases can cause major damage to a lawn if not properly treated.

Prevent Lawn Disease 

Here are some ways you can help prevent disease: 

  1. Water your lawn early in the morning instead of at night.
  2. Do not over-water your lawn. Lawns need 1 to 1.5 inches of water per week.
  3. Mow your lawn on a weekly basis at the proper mowing height with a sharp blade.
  4. Apply preventative fungicide treatments.
