At Picture Perfect, we are familiar with our local climate, the two types of grass most commonly grown in this area, fescue and bermudagrass, and the different diseases, weeds, and lawn problems that impact them. Two of the most common lawn diseases that face residents of Roswell, Georgia are:
Because brown patch affects both cool-season and warm-season grasses, it is one of the most common late spring and early summer lawn diseases in Roswell, Georgia. It appears as large circular and irregular patches of dead grass. As it spreads, the infected grass may wither and die, and over time, your lawn becomes thinner and weaker. As your lawn’s immune system suffers, it causes your yard to be more open to attacks from pests, weeds, and other diseases. The biggest problem with brown patch is that it grows and spreads rapidly.
The key to brown patch prevention is good lawn care practices, especially when it comes to watering. Never over-water your lawn, as sitting moisture can spark the brown patch fungus. Also, make sure your lawn is draining water properly. If it’s not, it may be the result of thatch buildup. If thatch is a problem on your lawn, our aeration and overseeding service may be the answer.Head over to our aeration and overseeding page to learn more about our process.
Another highly prevalent disease that affects our Roswell, Georgia turfs is Dollar Spot. Often apparent in early spring when the temperatures begin to consistently hit 50 degrees and above, dollar spot forms as small, dead patches of grass on your lawn about the size of a dollar coin. If the fungus is left to mature, the patches will grow and merge, forming larger, ugly patches of light-tan, diseased grass. Cooler, rainy nights, and debris create the perfect environment for dollar spot.
The best way to prevent dollar spot from taking over your lawn is through proper lawn care. Adequate fertilization is especially important. If your yard shows signs of dollar spot, switch to a fertilizer that is high in nitrogen and cleans up any debris which can trap moisture and become a breeding ground for fungus like dollar spot.
