Lawn Diseases to Watch Out for in San Antonio, TX
Lawn diseases in San Antonio have a common trait of giving your lawn grass that dead, rotting look. And as a residential or commercial property owner in San Antonio faced with a problem with a lawn disease, you should always take care of it before it spreads.
Lawn diseases that are common in San Antonio include:
As the name suggests brown patches form in circular patterns of dead grass blades and within two to three weeks new leaves start to emerge at the center of the circular patch, giving the infected areas a donut appearance. These brown patches are mainly common with the St. Augustine grass type. It's common in the late fall season and continues to spread even in early spring. Wet weather and frequent irrigation can easily promote the spread of the brown rings.
- Aerate your lawn at least once every year.
- Avoid over-watering or over-fertilization of your lawn.
- Apply a fungicide once you start to notice the first signs of the disease.
It first appears as a darkening of the grassroots and yellowing of the grass, which is later followed by thinning of your turf in irregular shapes. One of the worst effects of this disease is that the darkening of the roots that you start to notice when your lawn is infected usually indicates that rooting has been compromised - the roots rot at such a high rate that the grass can be easily pulled up by hand.
Take-all patches mainly affect St. Augustine, Bermuda, and Zoysia grasses. This disease is very intense such that it can quickly infect your entire lawn and kill everything. It is mainly common during winter, spring, and fall when the temperatures are cool and mild and there is abundant moisture. However, the signs and symptoms do not appear until the hot days of summer.
- Do not over-fertilize your lawn, as excessive nitrogen has been known to promote the Take-all patch disease.
- Maintain a good drainage system in your lawn area.
- Avoid or minimize urea-based fertilizers
- Raise the mowing height on your mower so as to reduce stress on your turf.
- Avoid the use of broadleaf herbicides since they will weaken your turf.
This disease causes your grass's blades to develop yellow and green stripes, or can even turn your grass yellow completely yellow. It's mainly common in soils with a high PH (high alkaline and phosphorus levels), and under cool and wet soil. The St. Augustine grass is also more susceptible to Iron Chlorosis.
- Avoid the use of fertilizers that have a high concentration of phosphorus.
- Aerate your lawn at least once every year.
- To offer temporary relief, try adding iron supplements to your lawn.
- Use a 1/4 to 1/3 inch layer of compost, when topdressing your turf.
When your lawn grass goes through harsh climatic conditions such as drought, it's likely to suffer from drought stress. Grass affected by drought stress appears silverish or blue-green, and its blades curl. Once you work through your lawn, you will start to notice that your footprints do not automatically disappear since the soil under the lawn is completely dry.
Turfs that require less water than others tend to survive through the drought stress.
- Irrigate efficiently
- Choose a drought-tolerant turf grass
- For a sloped area, try to consider using alternatives to turf.
Give us a call today if you feel that your lawn might be infected or is susceptible to any type of disease. We will diagnose your lawn and come up with a long-lasting solution tailored to its needs.
