Common Kentucky Lawn Diseases:

Brown Patch
Brown patch is one of the most common fungal diseases affecting Kentucky lawns. It typically becomes active in late spring or summer when the temperatures are consistently above 70 degrees, and the air is saturated with moisture. Brown patch starts in circular patterns, turning your grass blades from purplish-green to dark brown. In the morning, when the grass is still wet, it’s common to see “smoke rings” of black or gray around the border of the brown patches. If the disease is allowed to persist, it can weaken your grass, causing weeds and pests to invade, and eventually, your grass can wither and die.

The best way to prevent brown patch from occurring is through proper lawn practices, including frequent mowing and gradually reducing mowing height to 2 1/2 inches, irrigating only in the morning when necessary, and removing all grass clippings.

Red Thread
Unlike other lawn fungi, red thread doesn’t harm turfgrass. However, it alters its appearance, as it will make your lawn look as if someone’s woven red thread throughout. On closer inspection, you’ll find that the reddish threads look like antlers or thorns projecting between the blades. This ruins the appearance of the lush green lawn we all dream of. You can prevent this annoying disease from returning by following good lawn maintenance practices – namely, regular fertilization. Healthy lawns are better able to defend themselves against diseases and pests.

Snow Mold
Snow mold gets its name because it dwells under layers of snow and goes unnoticed until spring. This fungus results in patches of dead grass, and some people may experience allergic reactions when exposed. There are two types: pink snow (Microdochium nivale) and gray snow (Typhula incarnate). Both are unaffected by the cold and can grow on many lawn grasses. As you might have surmised, gray snow mold has a white or bleached appearance, while pink snow mold has a pinkish hue. Typically, gray snow mold creates dead patches that could be up to several feet in diameter, while pink snow mold patches are only about a foot in length.

Powdery Mildew
If your lawn looks like someone’s spilled baby powder on it, you’ve probably got powdery mildew. This fungal problem shows up in late spring and can affect not only turfgrass, but also the leaves of trees, shrubs, and flowers.

Necrotic Ring
Most lawn diseases create solid circles of dead grass. Necrotic ring breaks the mold. Instead, it appears as donut-shaped rings, where the center of the grass remains intact. Necrotic ring loves cool-season grasses, and once it’s been on your lawn, your turfgrass may need some help to get back on its feet.

Farison came out to spray in February, which was great, however I noticed dandelions started popping up in March. I called Farison and the representative told me it would be about 1 to 2 weeks before a technician could come out to spray. I am pleased to say Perry called and came out the very next da…

By FAR the best lawn care company I have ever worked with! Timely, thorough, kind, and willing to answer any and all questions. I have dealt with TruGreen several times in the past, and it was always an exercise in frustration. Do not choose any other lawn care company in the city.
