Common Turf Diseases We offer treatment for:

Rust: Look for thin, weakened turf that appears covered with an orange-red or yellow powdery dust.

Dollar Spot: On closely mowed turf, look for a collection of silver dollar sized, tannish brown to whitish spots. Turf will appear speckled or mottled. On residential turf, look for a collection of 1 inch to 6 inch diameter bleached white patches.

Red Thread (or Pink Patch): Look for coral-pink to red fungus strands that may be seen on leaves and leaf sheaths binding leaves together. Affected turf areas are usually more or less circular and vary from 2 to 15 inches in diameter. When dry, the pink strands resemble red threads. The infected leaf first appears water-soaked, but rapidly dies, becoming light tan. Leaves, and often the sheaths, are killed.

Snow Mold: Where snow mold has been active, the turf commonly develops rough circular spots of matted, silver-gray turf. Often these spots are so numerous that an entire area may be disfigured. The trouble is most likely to be seen on the shaded side of a building, in the shade of trees and shrubs, or similar areas where moisture remains for a long time in late winter.
