Solving Sarasota Lawn Fungus & Insect Problems

Lawn fungi issues often include Brown Patch Fungus, a small radius of infected grass turning brown caused by over watering and rains, Fairy Rings a problem caused by multiple fungi and usually during our rainy summers can create circular areas of rotten grass that can stay in the soil and recur on and off with rainy weather for years sometimes initially visible only by mushrooms that appear. Dollar spot and rust fungus are also problems for Sarasota area lawns and plants.
Getting Rid Of Harmful Lawn Insects & Microbiology

Eco-Friendly Sarasota Lawn Care Techniques:
- Soil Top Dressing – a layer ¼ inches thick deposited all over the lawn. The purpose of this is to fertilize and nurture the soil with a long-term soil improvement rather than harsh chemicals keeping your grass growing and healthy longer. It improves the soil quality, breaks down thatch layer, helps seeds germinate, it’s also useful for renovating a distressed lawn. It is important to clear pests and weeds before top dressing.
- Irrigation – Definitely the most important thing for lawn care water is necessary but only the minimal amount should be used in order to save on maintenance costs and safeguard soil health. Too much water can actually be worse than not using enough due to the face that over irrigating erodes the soil, and it will promote the growth of fungus and harmful microbiology. Our irrigation methods are designed to be low maintenance, low cost and environmentally friendly to ensure green grass all year round.
