What is spring dead spot?

Spring dead spot is a lawn disease that commonly affects lawns here in Oklahoma. As its name implies, spring dead spot can leave your lawn littered with dead spots in the spring. However, it starts harming the roots of your grass in the fall, weakening your lawn and making it unhealthy. A weak turf is also more susceptible to damage from winter-related stressors, like the snow and cold. This disease's impact on your lawn is extensive, and you should treat it immediately once you notice the signs.


Get Ahead of Spring Dead Spot With Preventative Treatments

Because spring dead spot starts to impact your lawn well before springtime, scheduling preventative treatments in the fall will ensure you get ahead of the disease before it can start causing any damage. Professionals will apply a highly effective fungicide treatment to your entire turf, which seeps underneath the soil to kill the disease before it can leave visible damage on the surface. If you wait too long to schedule a preventative treatment or skip one altogether, you could find this disease ravaging your lawn come spring.


Lawn care services like fertilization, overseeding, and soil conditioning can help your lawn fight off spring dead spot.

While preventative treatments are a great way to combat spring dead spot, it's not the only way. Another way to help your lawn fight off spring dead spot is by investing in lawn care services such as fertilization, soil conditioning, and overseeding! Each of these lawn care services has its part to play in protecting your lawn from spring dead spot.

  • Fertilization: Fertilization will supply your lawn with essential nutrients that will strengthen the grass and help it thrive.
  • Soil conditioning: Soil conditioning will give the roots of your grass better access to sunlight, water, and nutrients. With a healthy supply of resources within reach, it can grow strong, resilient grass that's less prone to stressors.
  • Overseeding: Overseeding will fill out bare, patchy areas on your lawn with healthy, durable grass. A thicker lawn is more resistant to diseases.

Fertilization treatments contain nitrogen and potassium, two essential nutrients that will help your lawn grow strong and be better able to stand up to lawn diseases.
