Lawn disease can be a serious problem for anyone wanting to maintain a healthy, attractive lawn. There are a number of things that can be done to prevent lawn disease, such as proper mowing, watering, fertilizing and grass type selection. However, even when we do these things right, it is possible to have sections of our lawn that suffer from disease on occasion. There are many diseases that affect lawns in Arkansas such as large patch, dollar spot and take all patch, just to name a few. The good news is, there are things that we can do to help your lawn through these issues.
As with most lawn issues, the best way to prevent significant disease damage is to maintain a healthy lawn through proper cultural practices such as the ones previously listed here. It is also important to make sure that lawn areas drain adequately so that the soil can dry between irrigation and rain cycles. If all else fails and you find yourself with a disease problem in your lawn then it may be time to address the issue with a fungicide application.
