Any lawn is susceptible to getting a disease or fungus. However, the healthier the grass, the better chance it will have to fight off a disease that tries to invade it. Lawn diseases are no fun to deal with. Nonetheless, they must be dealt with, and the sooner the better. Some diseases that are left untreated can actually become so engrossed in the grass and the grass roots that the only solution is to kill any remaining grass blades and start with brand new grass. This can be very costly, if this is the only solution. There are certain things that you can watch for that could be signs of a formulating disease on your lawn. Following is a list of some of the things to look out for.
Keep tabs on color changes
Some grass blades will change colors due to extenuating circumstances, such as the presence of grubs, unbalanced nutrients, or dog urine that has come into contact with the grass. However, if you notice areas of unexplained color changes on the grass, then it could be a sign of lawn disease. Keep an eye on color changes and consult with a professional lawn care company if you suspect the presence of a disease.
