Fungicide Program

Golf courses use it, you should too!

Fungicide control is one of the most underrated, underused lawn disease treatments. Ever wonder how golf courses look immaculately green without the interruption of fungi and other common lawn diseases. Want to know the truth behind having the best green lawn on the block? Do you have what it takes to elevate your lawn above the rest of the competition on block?

Some of the most destructive, pulverizing lawn disease can be controlled by a strong, Fungicide program. Green Lawn Fertilizing’s Fungicide Program will help prevent and control destructive lawn diseases such as: Dollar spot, Leaf Spot, Red Thread, Brown Patch and Summer Patch.

Fungal Damage Comparison

Below is a description of each prevalent turf disease in the Philadelphia tri-state area (Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware):

How to find Leaf Spot

Leaf spot, otherwise known as “melting-out diseases” are provoked by a special group of fungi. This group is referred to as Helminthosporium. Every season, our grass species are prone to a leaf spotting or “melting-out” effect. You can start to see this attack when your grass starts to become burnt out or consumed by burned brown spots. During the summer months, leaf spotting can attack nearly every turf species—tall fescue and ryegrass are especially prone to this attack. However, it’s advised to keep a close watch late spring through the summer months for the extreme damage and activity.

How to find Dollar Spot

Many lawn care diseases, once appearing only on golf courses, are now appearing commonly on our lawns. On our home turf, cut at 1 to 3 inches, with light tan or white dead areas reaching 2 to 4 inches in distance are good indicators of having dollar spot. These spots can ultimately produce large areas of dead turf. The most severe cases of dollar spot may occur during the muggy summer months on turf receiving a closely-spaced water source. This may also occur if your turf doesn’t have a proper irrigation source as the humidity can overtake your turf. Dollar spot is most direct when under a nitrogen deficiency or when your grass grows too slow.

How to find Red Thread

This common lawn fungus is prevalent amongst perennial ryegrass and fine fescue. These are the two most susceptible species of turf to this disease. There is a good chance you may notice these unsightly red/pinkish blotches on your turf as you went to get the mail, or as you may walk up to our door when you arrive home from work. Other contributing factors to the cause of red thread are insufficient nitrogen levels, and poor drainage of the turf. The more moisture on your lawn, the higher the probability of red thread occurring on your property is, or any disease for that matter.

With the combination of high summer temperatures, high humidity levels and inconsistent rain fall, the chances of developing a lawn care disease is always probable in the summer lawn care months. Fescue and Ryegrass are especially exposed to developing Red Thread, Leaf Spot and Dollar Spot during the summer months. Factors that can increase the likelihood of developing this harmful lawn disease are mowing at the wrong height, poor turf drainage and improper watering.

Since hiring GL and cutting my grass at 3.5-4 inches I have seen a significant improvement. I do not have an irragation system, water when needed etc. I pre pay for the entire season and use their aerate/seed service.

Have used Green Lawn Fertilizing for several years. For many years did it myself following the Scotts easy-to-follow plan—created specifically for my yard that said my yard will be the envy of the neighbors. Not true. See the pictures. Some are my... yard couple of my next-door neighbors. My yard used to look like my neighbors before starting the Green Lawn Service. You can see for yourself the difference and would highly recommend the Green Lawn Fertilizing Service.read more
