Turf Disease Control
Three things are needed for disease to develop in a lawn or trees and shrubs: a disease pathogen, a susceptible host, and environmental conditions that favor the development of the disease. This interrelationship is known as the Disease Triangle.
Turf grass disease control involves managing the disease triangle. This is accomplished by:
1. Understanding the environmental and lawn maintenance factors that affect disease development.
2. Cultural Control – improving the health and vigor of your lawn by using proper lawn care practices including: mowing, watering, and fertilizing.
3. Chemical Control – fungicide applications should only be used as a last resort. If disease spreads and damage occurs at unacceptable levels, fungicides can be applied on a curative basis to suppress the disease.
This will determine if the lawn needs soil pH adjustment to help create an environment ideal for the grass to grow to its potential.
Organic Lawn Care
We use low-nitrogen, slow-release fertilizer to keep the lawn as healthy and natural as it can be, and also we balance the pH to encourage the grass to grow in a healthy environment.
