The Experts at Dirt & Turf are here to help you get the lawn you dream of. Our team will work with you to determine what’s causing your lawn’s disease. Environmental factors will often play a role. Water management and the type of grass are the most common reasons for turf disease. More moisture equals more disease. Tall fescue is far more tolerant of the diseases common in New Jersey lawns than other cool-season turfgrasses, and that’s why this is our go-to grass type when creating your healthy lawn. Disease could brown out lawns, but won’t kill the grass. Then the infected grass will bounce back as climate becomes cooler.
Keep in mind grass seed only fills in the gaps, does not replace what is there, so if the affected grass doesn’t die, similar issues could arise next summer. Treatment of disease is more expensive than fertilizer and should include the homeowner’s preference for the course of action with disease, especially if the disease keeps recurring. Remember, fungicide to treat lawn disease only works for 14 days!
