Red Thread

Red Thread Red Thread is one of the most easily noticeable diseases to affect a lawn.  It makes it’s presence during the summer when humidity is high.

It can look like Pink patches in your lawn and you may even see small White almost cotton-like spores of Mycelium within the affected areas.  Really strong sections of Red Thread will have deep Red needles within the grass.

In the beginning you will notice the lawn showing Brown sections that sometimes appear Grey in colour too.  Then the Red and Pink sections will come to the fore.  Here at LawnRight we have noticed that other factors can contribute to a diseased lawn – these include drought stress and excess thatch.  If a lawn is not cut on a regular basis then this too can have a detrimental effect.

Thankfully there is a solution, and LawnRight are only too pleased to help.  Just ask.
