If you have noticed brown or gray spots on your grass blades or patches of dead grass, it may be time for a lawn fungicide application. Various types of fungus can cause all sorts of problems in your lawn. But if a problem arises today, is today the right time to try to remedy the situation? Keep reading for the facts you need to know about your lawn fungicide application.
The first thing to know about a lawn fungicide application is that a lawn care professional should diagnose your lawn fungus problem. Knowing exactly what you’re up against is the key to effective fungicide application. This will also determine the correct timing of the product application, and will be the deciding factor in which product to use. Using the wrong product at the wrong time might produce no effect at all, or worse, could cause even more damage to your lawn.
For some types of fungus, the window of opportunity to treat the problem is extremely narrow. If you miss that window and certain symptoms have appeared, it’s too late to treat the fungus. You can then only take steps to prevent the fungus from spreading. This is another reason why it’s crucial to call in a lawn care expert at the first sign of a problem.
The product and timing to use also depends on what type of grass you have growing in your yard. The entire care schedule is different for each type of warm-weather grass we see in the Atlanta area. Using the wrong care schedule for your grass type could have something to do with your fungus problem. An experienced lawn care professional can take a look at your grass and tell you what you have been doing right and wrong in your lawn care regimen.
One universal tip that can help you avoid future fungus problems is this: wet grass promotes fungus and pest problems. Therefore, it’s always best to water your grass in the early morning hours. This gives the grass blades all day in the sun to dry off and discourage fungus and pest issues from arising.
If you have ever tried to cure a lawn fungus problem on your own, you know that the home remedies all over the internet almost always provide little to no resolution. In fact, these DIY cures tend to cause even more problems with the lawn, whether it is from the actual substances applied to the grass or the delay in seeking professional treatment.
