June 11th, 2021 · No Comments

Lawn fungus is a common problem in the Midwest thanks to a variety of factors including fluctuating weather conditions and lawn care techniques. It may manifest as an occasional seasonal frustration, or it could be a chronic and deadly struggle for your lawn. At Maier Tree and Lawn, we provide anti-fungal treatments and lawn care methods that support every aspect of your Rochester, MN lawn year-round.

Mold and spores exist all over in nature. Occasional mushroom growth and small patches of fungus are normal, but it’s possible for lawn fungus to become severe enough to kill large patches of turf. It’s important during your lawn care routine to look for changes in growth or color, especially following long periods of rain or drought.

Fungus can manifest as rings of spores, grass discoloration, slimy textures, or even powdery and fuzzy growths. Different textures and appearances indicate different types of diseases or fungi, but every type of lawn fungus is potentially damaging if left untreated. Early detection and treatment are key in preventing spread and limiting the damage to your lawn.

The conditions that facilitate fungal growth are wide ranging. Too little or too much water can both contribute to lawn fungus. Improper lawn care, such as over-mowing and compacted soil, can make an impact as well. It’s also possible for fungus to grow even if you’re doing everything right. What’s most important is watching for these signs and investing in proper treatments before a small problem becomes a danger.

Our lawn care professionals at Maier Tree and Lawn provide anti-fungal treatments as well as spot treatments and lawn care consultations. Our lawn care experts are trained to recognize a wide range of lawn diseases and treat them effectively and quickly.
