Lawn Disease Control in Charlottesville

Is your lawn looking a little drab, like it's dying or has yellow spots or circles? Your grass may be suffering from lawn disease, and Turf HD is here to help! Our HD Elite Lawn Care Program includes additional servicing for lawn disease treatment and prevention in Charlottesville. 

What are some other signs of lawn disease? 

  • Discolored Patches: Look for irregular patches of discolored grass, which can range from yellow to brown or even red, depending on the disease.
  • Unusual Spots or Rings: Some diseases manifest as spots or rings on the lawn. Keep an eye out for these abnormal patterns that may indicate fungal infections.
  • Thinning Turf: If your once-thick lawn starts to appear sparse or thin in certain areas, it could be a sign of an underlying disease affecting grass density.
  • Irregular Growth Patterns: Diseases can disrupt the normal growth patterns of grass. Pay attention to areas where the grass appears stunted or exhibits uneven growth.
  • Wilting or Curling Blades: Diseases often affect the overall health of the grass, leading to wilting, curling, or other abnormalities in the appearance of the blades.
  • Presence of Mold or Fungi: Visible signs of mold, fungi, or unusual growths on the grass surface may indicate a fungal infection causing lawn disease.
  • Increased Weed Growth: Weeds can thrive in areas where the grass is weakened by disease. An uptick in weed growth may signal an underlying problem.
  • Changes in Soil Texture: Some diseases impact the soil, leading to changes in texture. Check for areas where the soil feels unusually compacted or spongy.
  • Visible Lesions on Blades: Examine the grass blades for lesions, spots, or discoloration. These markings can be indicative of specific diseases affecting the grass.
  • Unpleasant Odor: In some cases, diseases can lead to a foul odor emanating from the affected areas. Take note of any unusual smells in your lawn.

If you observe any of these signs, give us a call. Early intervention is key to preserving the health and beauty of your lawn. The experts at Turf HD have you covered!

Common Lawn Diseases in Central Virginia

Central Virginia's climate can contribute to various lawn diseases. Here are some common lawn diseases in our area that we are able to treat:

  • Brown Patch: This fungal disease thrives in warm and humid conditions, causing circular patches of brown or dead grass surrounded by a dark ring.
  • Dollar Spot: Characterized by small, silver-dollar-sized spots with bleached centers, dollar spot is a common fungal disease, particularly in lawns with nitrogen deficiencies.
  • Red Thread: Red or pink threads on grass blades indicate this fungal disease. It often occurs in lawns with low nitrogen levels and during humid conditions.
  • Powdery Mildew: Affecting a variety of plants, including grasses, powdery mildew manifests as a white, powdery substance on the grass blades.
  • Leaf Spot: Several fungi can cause leaf spot diseases, leading to small, dark lesions on grass blades. These spots may merge, causing extensive damage.
  • Rust: Rust diseases result in orange, rust-like pustules on grass blades. It is more prevalent in late summer and early fall.
  • Fusarium Patch: Also known as snow mold, this disease occurs in cool, wet conditions. It manifests as circular patches with a white or pinkish color.
  • Pythium Blight: Thriving in hot and humid conditions, Pythium blight causes irregularly shaped, water-soaked patches that can quickly lead to turf death.
  • Necrotic Ring Spot: This disease forms large, irregular patches of dead grass, often surrounded by a ring of dark green or healthy grass.
  • Summer Patch: Typically affecting Kentucky bluegrass and fine fescue, summer patch causes circular, yellow patches in mid to late summer.
