TURFGRASS PROBLEMS  
 
 
  Dandelion ~
Probably the most common broadleaf weed around.

    Clover ~
Effective at crowding out desirable turfgrasses.
       
               
Crabgrass ~
The best control is a spring preventative treatment.
Nutsedge ~
Best control is to pull by hand. A postemergent control will help to get rid of this problem perennial weed.

Bentgrass in a bluegrass lawn ~
A weed is "a plant growing where it does not belong." If you have bentgrass in your bluegrass lawn, then you've got a weed problem!

INSECTS          
  Grub damaged lawn ~ Grubs feed on the grass roots about one inch from the soil's surface. Typical signs of grub damage include: patches of wilted, dead, or dying visible turf. Also, if skunks, moles, or birds are searching for them by digging or
disturbing your lawn.
 
Adult Japanese beetle ~ This is what those nasty little grubs turn into! Once they get through feeding on your lawn's roots, they emerge from the ground to begin feeding on your plants!
 

European Chafer Beetle
 
Sod Webworm damage ~ These are the larvae of lawn moth's. They feed on your grass plant just above the crown. Some species feed below the ground. They feed at night and hide in your lawn's thatch layer during the day!
 
 
 
DISEASES    
  Snow mold ~ As the snow melts in early spring, symptoms appear as circular areas of straw-colored turf. This disease can kill off large areas of turf, however in many cases only the leaves are damaged. The grass plant can regrow from its crown, rhizomes and stolons.
 
Leaf spot ~ When the weather becomes humid, and temperatures range between 80 and 90 degrees (F), this disease develops more rapid. Minimize leaf wetness, and follow proper watering practices to help limit the spreading of this disease.
 
Red thread ~ Only the leaves of your grass plant are affected by this disease. Die back is from the tip down. Wet, overcast conditions favor the spreading of this disease. Turfgrass receiving inadequate nitrogen fertilization are most susceptible. A balanced, regular fertilization program will help defend your lawn against red thread.
Dollar spot ~ This disease is most sever during warm days, cool nights, and humid conditions. Nitrogen deficient turf is most susceptable. Low soil moisture also favors this disease. Water your lawn in the early moring so that the turf has plenty of opportunity to dry off.
