Disease control is an important part of home lawn care. Diseases, insects, and weeds are all pests of home lawns. Chemical controls are available but may not be necessary. If you follow proper management recommendations, you will have a healthy, vigorous turfgrass capable of withstanding most pest problems.

High nitrogen and/or low potassium levels, high pH in warm-season grasses, poor drainage, and wet conditions contribute to disease. However, there are always exceptions. For help identifying and controlling specific disease issues, contact your county Extension office.
