Is your lawn starting to look patchy or discolored? If so, there may be a lawn disease making its way through your turf. There are two specific lawn diseases you should be on the lookout for here in Nebraska: dollar spot and fairy ring. Dollar spot appears as little, white circular spots on your lawn and can eventually kill it. Fairy ring is usually characterized by large rings of discolored grass, severely impairing your lawn's overall appearance and health. If you think your turf is infected with either of these lawn diseases, then it's time to call your local lawn care professionals. They will apply curative treatments to eliminate any diseases affecting your turf.

What is dollar spot, and how can it damage your lawn?

Dollar spot is a fungal disease that typically starts infecting lawns in the springtime. You will start to see symptoms in the summer, affecting your lawn throughout the fall if left untreated. It’s often triggered when the weather starts to become warmer and more humid. The disease usually appears as small, round white spots on your grass that can be around 1 to 3 inches in diameter and looks reminiscent of dollar coins, hence the name. Dollar spot usually appears in clusters, and these clusters can expand and join together to make big, white patches of grass on your lawn. Without proper treatment, dollar spot will decrease your property's curb appeal and could even kill your grass in the long run.

What is fairy ring, and how can it damage your lawn?

Fairy ring is another fungal disease that usually occurs in the summer and fall when conditions are a little drier. It typically appears in brown or dark green circles, patches, rings, or arcs in the grass that can be anywhere from a foot in diameter to over 100 feet. Sometimes, you’ll see mushrooms in the darkened patches of grass. Fairy ring is mostly an aesthetic problem, but if it gets bad enough, this disease could end up severely harming your lawn's health.

If fairy ring or dollar spot has infected your turf, you should schedule curative treatments from lawn care pros.

If you think you’re seeing signs of dollar spot or fairy ring, it’s time to call in the professionals. Your local lawn care company will come to your property and determine if your lawn is infected with a disease. From there, they can apply curative treatments that will stop the disease in its tracks and keep it from causing any more damage. They will typically administer these treatments in the summer when the first symptoms of lawn diseases tend to arise. Professionals will also usually apply these treatments multiple times to ensure that it's completely eliminated.

Fertilization, aeration, and overseeding services can help bring your lawn back to life if it suffered damage from a lawn disease.
