Keeping your turfgrass safe from fungal diseases is an essential part of lawn care. Lawn fungi can take various forms, and they are all incredibly damaging to your home’s landscape. Over the past couple of weeks, we have discussed the appearances and aftereffects of brown spot disease and gray leaf spot disease. Now it’s time to sit down and have a better look at another common turfgrass disease that crops up in the summertime: the troublesome dollar spot infection.
Brown Patch is one of the most commonly seen types of turfgrass disease. While you might have heard of a similar term (summer patch), the two are not identical. Identifying, controlling, and preventing brown patch disease sounds complex, but it doesn’t need to be. By working with the pros at On the Green, Inc., you can make sure your lawn looks beautiful until Labor Day and beyond!
Many different turfgrass diseases can ruin your lawn. While some of the more common include Brown Patch and Dollar Spot, one you may not have heard of often enough is called Gray Leaf Spot. Also known as GLS, this affliction is highly destructive to your lawn. Today, we present a deep dive into this disease caused by a fungal pathogen known as Pyricularia grisea. The pathogen destroys the turf it infects because it kills off the blades. Brand new seedlings are particularly vulnerable, so if you plan on seeding soon, here is what you should know!
It’s hard to ignore or get away from the constant background noise provided by the cicadas. From late spring to about midsummer, it is the soundtrack we will all have to experience for the time being. Still, you might have questions about them since they only come out every 17 years or so. 2004 was a long time ago, and much about our society, and our world, has changed since then. But the more things change, the more they stay the same. What should you know about the bizarrely charming cicada? Let us tell you more!
One of the most unpleasant parts of spring and summer is when insects come out to play. Most bugs are harmless, if not a little creepy. Ticks and mosquitoes are typically viewed as pests and nuisances that are just a part of life. But the combination of wet weather, poor landscaping, and a lack of caution can lead to some common diseases that are treatable and even curable if caught early enough. What illnesses are we talking about? Keep reading to find out more!

The last time we met, we talked about overseeding the lawn to restore it to last year’s health and beauty. As we all know, overseeding has more than just an aesthetic purpose. We reseed our landscapes in spring and fall to keep weeds at bay, enhance our properties’ value, and create balanced micro-ecosystems that thrive in harmony. For this reason, it is crucial to succeed in our effort and avoid any post-overseeding mistakes. Our experts in lawn treatments in Severn MD, are here today to offer you a few don’ts to consider after you overseeded the lawn.
In spring, overseeding your lawn to fix the bare patches is the best thing to do to enjoy a dense, lush yard and garden the entire year. However, depending on your area, you can choose among cool-season, warm-season, or transition grasses and turf varieties. Today, our lawn treatments experts in Millersville MD are here to present you with some of the best grass types to grow outdoors, depending on your living area.
As you look around your property and admire your landscape, you might notice that some trees do not grow as well as others. Some might show signs of nutrient depletion, diseases, pest activity, and so on. Since trees lie dormant during the cold season and the ground is too cold to work on, you have little options to intervene to restore your trees to health. Among such options are tree injections, a surefire way to fend off pests and diseases. Our experts in Lawn Treatments in Crofton MD, are here today to explain to you a few things about how tree injections work.
