The Battle Never Ends!

It’s almost fall, the weather is cooling off, it’s time to fertilize, but I’m still having lawn ‘issues’!  It’s a lawn fungus. And based on some neighborhood observations, I’m not alone.

To be sure it’s not grubs, try pulling up a brown patch. If you can’t, it’s fungus. Your next step is to buy a bag of fungus control at your local hardware store. Apply it at the suggested rate and let it go to work! It takes a week or 2 to get things back to normal. In the meantime, you can go back to cleaning up the weeds and getting the fall bag of fertilizer ready. You should wait 2 weeks after you put down the fungus control to fertilize.


If you don’t have problems like fungus in your lawn, it’s time to start in on the fall lawn ‘to-dos’ like fertilizing, aerating, and dethatching. Please refer to Page 47 in the Lawn Club eBook for information on what to do for the fall.   Lawn Club eBook


This is great weather to get out there and get your fall lawn maintenance started!
