Lawn fungus is just a fact of life. In the same way that the sun rises in the east, lawn fungus will grow on Winona, MN properties. However, whether or not the fungus is a problem is a different issue entirely. At Maier Tree and Lawn, our lawn care professionals can help you identify, treat, and prevent harmful fungus development on your lawn when you’re faced with unfamiliar growths.

The Fungus Among Us

Despite being frustrating to deal with as a property owner, molds and lawn funguses are an incredibly old, impressive, and pervasive lifeform. In many cases, the occasional fungal growth on your property doesn’t even pose a risk for your lawn or trees. Lawn fungus comes and goes with the seasons, and depending on the species, it might not even stick around long enough for you to get attached.

But the type of lawn fungus that causes trouble for lawn care is another beast entirely. Some mold species can and will cause damage to your property if left to their own devices. What’s worse, they can start out looking unassuming, just like their less destructive cousins.

Identifying Problem Molds

Though it’s best to play it safe and consult a professional when you see discoloration on your lawn that you don’t recognize, it’s still helpful to have a few tips and tricks in mind when trying to identify problem molds. One simple tip that homeowners can follow is to watch for expansive, circular growth. Many harmful types of lawn fungus grow outward in circular patterns. This can be in the form of circular discoloration or even just repeating circles of dead grass or yellow spots. Lawn fungus may not always be visible to the naked eye, but as it causes damage to your turf, the area around it will likely start to show signs.

As stated above, relying on lawn care professionals to diagnose and treat your property is always the safer bet. There are so many varieties and species of lawn fungus that trying to identify them on your own may be an exercise in futility. Our lawn care professionals at Maier Tree and Lawn can spot problem spots and begin treatment as quickly as possible once you get in touch.
