Lawn Problems

Grey leaf spot

Lawn Problems | Grey Leaf SpotThis is a fungal disease that occurs in hot and humid conditions. It can affect any turf variety in particular Kikuyu. It is easy to minimize the risk of this by watering in the early afternoon allowing the plant leaf to dry out before night fall. Control can also be achieved using a fungicide such as Mancozeb.

Pythium leaf blight

The quality of the soil needs to be evaluated in relation to compaction, poor drainage and thatch build up. Once these issues are addressed then look at potassium applications together with regular aeration which when can greatly increase the quality of the plant to enabling it to recover. Fungicides generally do not work well with this disease as they may disguise the underlying problem.
