Lawn disease on the rise
Snowfall across the UK this year sparked concern of a rise in the number of cases of the lawn disease Fusarium Patch.
The disease thrives during periods of prolonged coldness and moistness leaving many gardeners worried as to the condition of their lawns following recent icy weather conditions.
A lawn suffering from Fusarium disease will initially display small orange coloured spots that will rapidly enlarge, leaving the turf susceptible to scarring.
Ross Cooper of Greenspace Grass said: “Unfortunately British lawns are prone to various diseases that can leave unsightly marks or even scarring. Snow Mould and Leaf Spot are two further diseases that can cause similar problems.
“We receive many enquiries from gardeners looking to replace their turf with one of our artificial lawn systems because of the unsightly damage caused by disease.”
