Lawn Disease Control
Weather patterns have the ability to directly affect your lawn and Georgia’s humid climate is perfect medium to encourage fungus and other diseases that are extremely common in local grasses.
At Hometown Turf we offer quality chemical lawn treatments and specialty fungal treatments that are designed to provide disease control. Our technicians are knowledgeable and experienced with chemical and organic lawn products that are specifically engineered to prevent and eradicate lawn disease and fungus from your yard.
Some of the common signs of fungus and disease include
Leaf Spot – spots on the grass leaves that have purplish to purplish brown borders and brown to tan centers.
Brown Patch – This disease is characterized by brownish gray patches in circular areas that may be a few inches to several feet in diameter. Most commonly found in Fescue Lawns.
Rust – will turn the grass light green and then begin to create an orange to reddish cast on your lawn, most often found in Zoysia and Bermuda Grasses.
Fairy Ring– This fungal infection is mostly caused by mushroom fungi and low soil fertility. The first noticeable sign of fairy rings may be a ring of mushrooms followed by rings of darker grass with an inside border of dead grass.
If your lawn is showing any signs of disease or fungus, or if you are experiencing signs or symptoms that you have never seen before contact us today to schedule your fungicide or chemical lawn treatment. Hometown Turf is equipped to eradicate all types of diseases from your lawn.
Lawn Aeration & Grass Seeding
Aeration is the process of removing small cores of soil which will allow air, water and nutrients into the root zone of your lawn to improve soil density and aid in the removal of thatch. We recommend aerating your grass annually. Certain types of grass such as Fescue require seeding applications in conjunction with a professional aeration program to ensure success. Since fescue does not self-germinate like other types of grass; it needs to be replenished after seasonal turf loss which is typically caused by disease, drought and other factors causing stress.
Benefits of Lawn Aeration and Seeding Include:
• Lawn water absorption and less runoff
• Promotes seed germination
• Opens soil to receive air
• Increases grass rooting
Aerating and seeding your lawn will increase the health, strength and appearance by allowing your lawn to receive the necessary nutrients it requires to be strong and healthy.
Regular application of fertilizer to your lawn is essential to providing your grass with the nutrients it needs to encourage density, growth and color. Using fertilizer will give your lawn the nutrients that it may be missing out on so that your grass can be healthy and consistent in color and appearance. Our expert lawn care technicians use the highest quality fertilizers available including organic fertilizers.
Benefits of fertilization include:
• Fewer insects & weeds
• Thicker, healthier grass that reduces run-off
• Resistance to disease, drought and other stress factors.
