Medium_lawn Fungus in wintergreen couch lawn.

Had our wintergreen couch lawn laid about 2 months ago and until 2 weeks ago it was thriving. Now these light grey/blue dry patches have started appearing and killing off the grass quickly and is spreading. Have treated with Mancozeb a week ago and it looked like it was working. But have since noticed more dry light grey/blue patches appearing on the perimeters of existing patches. We are at a loss as we water and mow regularly. Could you please advise?

Answer: Hello Chris,

To combat a wider range of diseases in your lawn, you should consider Yates Zaleton Dual Action Systemic Fungicide.

Have you considered possible insect pests? Y"Yates Baythroid Lawn & Garden Insecticide":/products/pest-control/insects-concentrates/yates-baythroid/ will control a range of insect pests which may be responsible for symptoms similar to those displayed in your photo.

Once your pest and disease issues are addressed and your lawn is recovering, consider Yates Dynamic Lifter Concentrated Lawn Food to maximise your lawn’s health and resilience to further pest and disease attack.

All the very best with your lawn.

Kind regards,
