How to avoid lawn disease and cure your lawn problems

Lawn disease is the last thing you want this summer. It’s something that affects a number of gardens in the UK and can be confusing, as it’s often difficult to identify the cause.

It’s good to keep in mind that lawn diseases are most commonly fungus and can be treated easily. An early diagnosis is important to ensure that the disease does not spread and damage the rest of the lawn. There are 3 common types of lawn disease in the UK; Red Thread, Fusarium and Leaf Spot.

Dealing with waterlogged lawns

Heavy rain and poor lawn maintenance often leads to your lawn becoming waterlogged. This is often described as when the lawn becomes squelchy and boggy underfoot, and when water collects in pools on your lawn. Waterlogging can lead to your grass wilting, turning yellow and over prolonged periods, dying.

What to do with a frost covered lawn?

Wherever you live, at some point in the year the temperature will drop and your lawn will freeze. When this happens you should avoid walking on your lawn as much as possible. Walking on a frozen lawn can cause the blades of grass to swell and potentially rupture.

As the grass blades burst, it damages the cell structure causing the grass to turn grey/black in colour. When the grass is frozen you should also try and avoid mowing the lawn.
