Living in Nebraska we know all too well the hot humid summers are best spent at the pool. However, the best place for your lawn is not in the water. These wet, humid conditions can cause fungus to grow in your lawn. So, the best time to water your lawn is before the sun comes up in the morning for no more than 20 minutes per zone. If you are finished watering when the sun comes up, the sun will dry your grass and help prevent fungus from forming on your lawn. Fungus in your lawn may have many different looks. Some types of fungus have patterns and others are just brown patches in your lawn that resemble lack of water. But do not water more, as that will just compound the problem.
Enjoy your summer! And remember if you need professional help for fungus treatments, give us a call. We'd love to help!
