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.

My lawn has never looked better, even with the drought! I've never been one to compare lawns with others on my street, but now I can't help it! Even though this is only the first year I've used the service my lawn (and my next door neighbor's who... also uses GreenLawn) looks the best even through I don't water it. The treatments provided clearly improves the lawn's health in addition to keeping it green and eliminating weeds. Well done GL!! I'm very glad I went with you!!read more

So far has been a great experience. Price isn't too bad. They tell you exactly what they did, don't harass you with more stuff to sell, and they give you a heads up when they are coming. Very easy to deal with

Lois was extremely helpful and courteous. He knew exactly why our grass was turning brown and was apologetic for a technician that treated our lawn and caused holes in our yard. He easily explained what happened and was happy to fix all areas... that were damaged. He was also helpful to give advise on how to keep the grass greener. He used to treat our lawn but I can easily see why he was promoted due to his knowledge and professionalism.read more

Mary Sandoval is the technician who treated our lawn today. She was super thorough, answered all my questions patiently and professionally and was extremely pleasant. I rarely write reviews for anything, but Mary deserves to be recognized for being... so knowledgeable and for not making me feel like I should rush through my questions, even though it was the Friday afternoon of Memorial Day weekend! I hope Ms. Sandoval doesn't get the chance to review me ;)read more

When we moved into our new house, the front and back yards were not properly maintained at all. As soon as we moved in, the HOA came knocking wanting us to take care of it immediately. I took at shot in the dark by calling Green Lawn but they... delivered...big time. In one season, the lawn went from a weeded ugly mess to a lush green oasis that looks like Garden of Eden. I was stunned. That doesn't happen often and I feel obligated to let the company know when it does. Thank you Green Lawn! Our lawn is gorgeous.read more
