What’s Wrong with My Lawn?

You put hours into your lawn, doing everything you were told to do to make the grass green and lush. You’ve aerated, fed, watered, and mowed, and everything looked great – until suddenly, it didn’t. Almost overnight, there are patches of dead grass. Or maybe some spots are an unusual color, or just look “off” somehow. Whatever the issue, it’s unsightly, and it looks to be spreading.

Oftentimes, when a lawn develops problems like dead or discolored areas, the culprit is disease or lawn fungus. But before you give up and decide to just replace your lawn with artificial turf, you should know that your grass can be saved. By correctly identifying the problem, and applying the proper treatment, you can eradicate the disease and go back to enjoying a yard full of healthy grass.

Certain Times in Auckland weather conditions are perfect for fungus disease.

When high humidity conditions are experienced … fungus disease becomes rampant in Auckland … Total Turf have found there are a lot of lawns that will be prone to fungus disease .

To help reduce the disease please follow some simple steps … if your lawn is looking dry – DO NOT WATER IT – it will probably be fungus disease … watering will only spread the disease.

TIPS: –

  • DO NOT WATER AT NIGHT TIME – (NIGHT WATERING PROMOTES DISEASE)
