Services providing modern lawn care Bellingham MA are popular because maintaining a good lawn in Bellingham has its difficulties. This article covers some of the usual issues that people have when they are trying to fix up and maintain their lawn.

Disease Control

If you see brown patches on your lawn, then it may be something called Rhizoctonia Blight. It often happens in hot weather and create a patch of brown lawn that is often circular. The best way to fix this is with cold water, preferably watered at night, but for more serious cases, you will need a lawn care expert.

There is the “Dollar Spot” that is also known as Sclerotinia Homeocarpa. This is another warm-weather problem where a fungus takes hold. Large, tan-colored wounds appear on the grass blades. In most cases, this causes small dead patches of lawn, but if left unchecked, it can eventually kill an entire lawn over the course of a few years.

Leaf Blight is also known as Ascochyta Spp and this disease occurs during hot, humid weather. This is often directly caused by people who mow their lawn in the late evening and then over water their grass.

Lawn rust is a scraggy rough patch of grass that often has yellow and orange flecks on the leaves so that from a distance it seems like light brown (rusty) grass. It often occurs when there are extended periods of low light and low temperatures with high humidity.

Weeds and Unwanted Growth

We all know what weeds are. They are highly resistant plants that are easily spread. They take hold wherever they can and they spread relatively quickly when compared to most garden plants. When people talk about unwanted growth, they may mean weeds, but they may also be referring to times when your plants and your grass migrate into areas they shouldn’t be (like the cracks in your paths and such). 

These days, you want an Eco-friendly solution for weeds, moss and unwanted growth, and there aren’t that many on the market. You can do the manual work, which is pretty Eco-friendly, or you can use some sort of biodegradable weed killer if you wish. In most cases, prevention is better than the cure. You have your landscaper create a garden environment where it isn’t easy for weeds and unwanted growth to take over.
