Many property owners in Georgia think that there is a certain kind of treatment to prevent lawn disease. But really, it's simply just keeping up with your lawn care schedule. Lawn care is truly the only way to prevent lawn disease. Caring for your lawn involves more than the usual tasks that come to mind when we think of lawn or landscape care.
Lawn care includes fertilization and weed control, aeration and overseeding, as well as lime treatments. By signing up for these services regularly, you can help strengthen your lawn so it will be strong enough to fight off lawn diseases.
Fertilization and weed control protect your lawn.
It's no secret, nutrient-deficient grass is far more susceptible to lawn disease than healthy lawns. Since lawn diseases target weak lawns, the best line of defense is to use fertilization and weed control to protect your lawn.
Fertilizer treatments deliver essential nutrients to your lawn's root system. In turn, your lawn uses the food to grow and strengthen its roots which helps the yard ward off lawn disease. That's why establishing a regular fertilization schedule is critical to ensuring your lawn's good health.
Signing up for weed control treatments is also important because weeds can steal nutrients from your grass, leaving your grass malnourished and susceptible to lawn diseases. Applying pre-emergent and post-emergent weed control treatments can help deter new weed growth and eliminate existing weeds.
Fertilization and weed control are the perfect compliments to each other so scheduling them together goes a long way towards keeping your lawn healthy.
Aeration and overseeding will keep your lawn strong and dense.
Aeration is an important lawn care service as it is responsible for loosening any compacted soil on your lawn. If your soil is compacted, it will be hard for nutrients to reach the roots of your grass. When your lawn is aerated, nutrients will be able to reach the roots of your turf, allowing them to grow strong. A strong lawn will be better able to fight off any lawn diseases it faces.
Overseeding can strengthen your lawn by making it denser. Thinning or worn-out grass is a magnet for lawn disease. You can thicken patchy lawn spots by planting new grass seed directly into these areas; this is called overseeding. Overseeding is especially beneficial to your lawn after aeration as it allows the seeds to easily find their way into the soil by way of small holes left by the aerator.
Lime treatments will balance the pH levels in your soil.
Fertilization can be a powerful tool in improving your lawn's health, but some yards exhibit resistance to fertilizer every now and then. This can be due to the pH levels in your soil being too acidic. Lime treatments will help to increase the pH levels in your soil (making it less acidic and more alkaline) which makes it easier for your soil to absorb the nutrients that it needs. When your soil is receiving the right amount of nutrients, your lawn will have a better chance of standing up to lawn diseases.
