Has your lawn in Michigan recently fallen victim to a lawn disease that left it weak and damaged? By investing in lawn care services like fertilization, overseeding, and aeration, you can help it bounce back! Fertilization will provide your lawn with the essential nutrients it needs to recover. Overseeding will fill in bare or patchy areas of your turf caused by lawn diseases. Aeration will loosen compacted soil and make it easier for nutrients and other resources to reach the roots of your grass. With these three lawn care services, your lawn will bounce back from a lawn disease.
Fertilization gives your lawn the nutrients it needs to recover from lawn diseases.
Lawn diseases can take a toll on your lawn, and it can be hard for your lawn to recover from the damage on its own. Fortunately, you can help your lawn recover with fertilization! Fertilization will provide your turf with the essential nutrients it needs to recover and replenish its health, such as nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus:
- Nitrogen helps give your grass a healthy green color by encouraging chlorophyll production. Chlorophyll contributes to photosynthesis, which increases your turf's health.
- Potassium strengthens your lawn to be more resistant to lawn diseases, whether it be fighting them off or withstanding and surviving them.
- Phosphorus helps create a strong root system, which every lawn needs to be more durable and resilient against stressors, such as lawn diseases.
Common lawn diseases in Michigan include leaf spot, dollar spot, red thread, snow mold, fusarium blight, and necrotic ring spot.
Overseeding fills in bare or patchy areas caused by lawn diseases.
Lawn diseases can cause extensive damage to your turf, resulting in bare and patchy areas of weak or dead grass. Overseeding is a beneficial lawn care service that will fill those patchy spots with healthy, new grass growth. It will create an overall denser turf that will be more resistant to lawn diseases in the future.
Aeration gives the roots of your grass improved access to the resources it needs to recover from lawn diseases.
Your lawn will need access to nutrients and other resources to recover from lawn disease damage. Over time, your soil can compact, making it difficult for these resources to reach the roots of your grass. Fortunately, that's where aeration comes in: core aeration will loosen compacted soil by pulling "cores," from the soil. These holes make it easier for sunlight, water, air, and nutrients to reach the roots of your grass. By giving the roots of your grass improved access to nutrients, your lawn will be better equipped to recover from any damage caused by a lawn disease.
For best results, you should schedule overseeding directly after your lawn has been aerated so that the seeds can fall into the holes, giving them excellent seed-to-soil contact.
