Lawn Care Tips For Beginners

One of the most important tasks you can do on your lawn during winter is to ensure it is cleaned up at all times. Never leave debris, children toys, lawn furniture, or plant leaves out on the grass. This is to avoid smothering the grass, inviting harmful pests, or creating favorable conditions for diseases. An exception to this rule is when the leaves are not too thick or wet and can therefore serve as mulch and add nutrients to the grass.

These are the four most common fall lawn diseases to watch out for including Necrotic Ring Spot, Fairy Rings, Red Thread, and Rust. If you notice signs of an outbreak of any of them, contact your local experts for advice on how to stop them from spreading on your lawn.
