harmless, while others can destroy an entire lawn in a very short time.
DISEASE TRAVELS BY FOOT, WATER & AIR
Fungus spores spread on the wheels of lawn mowers, on the shoes of children, on
the droplets of water that bounce from plant to plant during rainfall or watering,
or by wind, blown like microscopic seeds across your lawn. Every lawn has disease
organisms. The trick is not letting them get the upper hand.
PREVENTION IS THE BEST CURE
To reduce disease, keep your lawn healthy and growing with proper feeding, mowing, watering and thatch control measures. Some grass types are much less susceptible to fungus attack. Consider planting disease resistant varieties when you seed.
WITH TREATMENT, CONTROL IS THE GOAL
Disease treatments do not usually eliminate the disease from lawns. Instead, they suppress activity for a period of a few days to several weeks. The goal is to keep the disease in check long enough for your grass to recover or the weather conditions to change. Often, several treatments are needed.
