Keep an eye out for Fusarium

Lawns tend to need less attention over the winter period, but there are some important and potentially devastating issues to watch out for. One of the main problems to watch out for during these cold wet days is the fungal disease Fusarium (microdochium nivale). The initial signs of the disease are patches of yellow-brownish grass or white or pinkish mould, similar to candy floss, forming on the surface of the grass. The disease can develop overnight and if not checked can cause serious scarring of your lawn.

If you think you may have Fusarium just give me a call and I can arrange to check it out for you.
