Fungi are a natural part of a balanced ecosystem and important for soil health, plant nutrition, and decomposition of fallen leaves and other organic matter. However, some species can cause unsightly mold or mildew growth that can affect the appearance of your lawn. It occurs when there is an interruption in the natural balance between beneficial and harmful fungi that results in environmental stress or disease. Early detection is the key to preventing fungi from damaging your lawn. That is why it is important to know the early signs of a fungi infestation before it goes out of control.
Do You Have Fungus in Your Lawn?
If your lawn is browning, thinning, or has dead patches that are scattered throughout the lawn and not isolated to one area, it may be an indication of a potentially harmful fungi infestation. Here are some telltale signs of a lawn infestation you should be on the lookout for:
- If your lawn is infected with fungi, you may notice that the grass blades are turning light brown before they begin to die. As the disease advances and spreads, the grass will turn a uniform yellow-brown color.
- Dead patches may occur as the fungus advances and you will see small clumps of grass that have died and dried out. These discolored patches are usually found scattered throughout the lawn, not isolated to one specific area.
- A distinct grassy odor can often be noted when you walk on the lawn or step on one of these discolored patches. This is a sure sign that there may be something wrong with your lawn.
- A circular browning pattern on the grass is also a sure sign of a fungal lawn infection. The center of the hole will usually have dead, dry blades that appear to be burnt. The fungus will then spread outward from the center and begin to consume surrounding grass blades.
The best way to get rid of unwanted fungi on your lawn is by controlling the environment where it can thrive. Controlling the amount of water, sunlight, and nutrients allows you to stop an infestation from happening while also preventing future fungal growth.
