Red Thread Disease
One of the more common lawn diseases throughout our area of the Treasure Valley is a fungal-based condition known as red thread. Oftentimes, you will notice a tinge of red color in the leaf blade. We offer a curative solution to treat the fungus and eradicate red thread from your property. You'll want to schedule our service as soon as possible so we can quickly come out and administer our curative treatment. This will rid your lawn of this disease and prevent red thread from spreading throughout your turf.
Ascochyta Leaf Blight Disease
Another common lawn disease in our area is ascochyta leaf blight. A sure tell symptom includes large irregular patches of straw-colored turf that appears to look dead. It mostly affects the leaf blade; blades usually start dying from the tips, not from the crown or roots. Causes can include drought stress, poor watering conditions, and mowing with a dull blade. Turf can usually bounce back after a few weeks with good lawn care practices including proper watering, mowing with a sharp blade and not during wet weather, applying fertilizer, and keeping uniform soil moisture.
Red thread and leaf blight most commonly affect Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, and tall fescue.
Good maintenance practices are the best form of prevention against lawn disease.
Once any lawn diseases are repaired it will be important to maintain the health of your lawn. Our season-long lawn care services are a great overall program for lawn health. These services will greatly improve your lawn's ability to fight off disease, insects, and weeds. We recommend the following lawn care services to grow a disease-resistant lawn:
- Lawn Fertilization - Our lawn fertilization service will provide your lawn with the nutrients that it needs to grow, which is important as your lawn is recovering from red thread.
- Aeration - Reducing the compaction of your soil allows your grass to access those vital nutrients more easily, thereby improving the health of the root zone.
- Overseeding - Overseeding is a great way to fill in thinning grass and will also grow new grass in previously-damaged areas.
