How To Identify Lawn Fungal Diseases

  • White, yellow, or brown patches or rings that grow in diameter.
  • Thin patches of frayed, distorted, or discolored grass blades.
  • Areas of darkened, wet-looking, slimy, or greasy-looking grass.

Your lawn is naturally full of fungi and spores, some harmless and some problematic, but the right (or wrong) conditions can cause grass fungus to erupt into a harmful disease.

  • Improper mowing (especially mowing too low)
