Lawn Fungus Treatment Options

By Allyn Paul, filed under Lawn Tips.



Lawn fungus treatment is often required even in the thickest lawn. But identifying brown patches and brown spots in the lawn is not the easiest task. Keep in mind that not all brown spots in the lawn are caused by fungus. Either way, this article will help you with some of the general lawn fungus treatment options and in addition, help you identify the exact lawn disease you amay be dealing with.

The most important factor in dealing with lawn fungus is prevention! It is extremely difficult to eradicate a lawn fungus once it has already taken hold and caused damage.
Secondly, there are some fungus problems that are caused by poor soil conditions, while others are caused by weather conditions. Each type needs a different course of action.

Lawn Fungus Treatment for Weather Related Diseases

Some of the more common lawn fungus problems that crop up due to long, cool wet periods are: Leaf Spot, Powdery Mildew, Red Thread Lawn, Rust and SnowMold. These are common lawn fungus and not very serious if you get on top of them. The best way to prevent them is to apply a granular lawn fungicide treatment in later April and again in later May (according to package directions). These simple treatments should thwart the onslaught of the disease.
If you do get to the problem late, you can still treat the problem to prevent it from getting any worse.

Here is a specific article on Red Thread Lawn Fungus. Here is another about Dollar Spot Fungus.




Lawn Fungus Treatment for Soil Related Lawn Diseases

The two lawn diseases that I normally associate with poor soil conditions are pythium blight and fusarium blight. These two problems are often generically referred to as patch diseases.
The quickest way to combat these two problems is to have your lawn aerated in the spring and fall every year, as well as check your pH and see if a lime application is needed. In addition, you do not want to over-fertilize with heavy nitrogen when these lawn fungus are present in your lawn.

There are also some simple, everyday changes you can make to reduce the likelihood of getting a lawn fungus.

Proper watering is important. Water just a couple times per week and water deeply when you do. Always avoid light waterings.

Proper mowing… First off, it is a myth that lawn fungus are spread from lawn to lawn on mower wheels or with hoses and spreaders. Either way, you should always catch your clippings when a disease is present and mow tall.

Another concern with lawn fungus is the thatch layer. This article tells you all about lawn thatch.

Lawn Fungicides

There are two lawn fungicide classifications

CONTACT FUNGICIDES: once applied, remain on the plant’s surface and kill spores that come in contact with it. These treatments lay on top of the leaves and will degrade with sunlight and rain. These most normally come in liquid spray form and are minimally effective.

SYSTEMIC FUNGICIDES: Usually granular, these lawn fungus treatments are dissolved into the soil and taken up into grass plants through their roots. These treatments are longer lasting and work to prevent disease in the lawn.

To summarize, the best lawn fungus treatment comes with proper watering and mowing, reduction of thatch thru aeration and keeping the soil loosened with aeration as well. Lawn fungus treatments applied should be systemic preventative. See the box below for some of the best lawn fungicides.

    4Avatars v0.3.1 v0.3.1

    Hi James, sorry but mushrooms come up due to something in the soil, not the same as a lawn fungus.
    There really is no way to get rid of mushrooms in the soil like that, sorry
