How to Tackle Lawn Fungal Diseases
Lawn Fungal Diseases are often confused with drought, fertilizer burn, or insect or pet damage. When in doubt, it’s always a good idea to schedule an evaluation with your Giroud Lawn Care Specialist. Your Giroud Lawn Expert can give a proper diagnosis and determine the best course of action.
The good news is most lawn disease symptoms are temporary and fungicide use is usually not warranted. Most lawn diseases will dissipate when weather conditions change. However, keeping your grass strong with Giroud’s fertilizer applications will help stimulate new growth and crowd out the fungus.
In severe cases, several properly timed fungicide applications may be necessary for effective disease suppression. Plus, Giroud treats only the specific problems that exist on your lawn. This targeted approach keeps your lawn healthy and eliminates unnecessary use of chemicals.
