There are plenty of threats to your lawn in the spring and summer months. Weeds, insects and other pests can invade your commercial or residential lawn. Possible turf diseases include Brown Patch, Curvularia, Dollar Spot, Fairy Ring, Mold, Pythium, Rust, Spring Dead Spot and Zoysia Patch. Mowing can pose a threat, too: try to avoid an improperly scalped lawn, dull mower blades, heavy thatch and uneven mowing.
Fall leaves are beautiful here in West Georgia, but they can also be detrimental to the health of your lawn. Big piles of leaves are too dense to allow light and air in to reach the turf. All lawns need sunlight and air circulation to help the leaves with composting. Leaving your leaves in a big pile can result in a bare or yellow spot in the spring, and the remaining leaves will be slippery. Leaves should be raked up or mulched into the grass for effective lawn care. Mulched leaves that are spread throughout the lawn are not harmful to the grass. In fact, they can attract earthworms that eat the leaves and naturally aerate and fertilize the soil!
