SOUTHPORT, England, December 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Homeowners and green keepers have this week been alerted to troubling news concerning the effect of the cold weather on their lawns. The team at Turfland are encouraging people to take extra care this winter as experts issue warnings about attacks of Fusarium patch.
Fusarium patch is vastly more likely after significant snow cover and horticulturalists are readying themselves for another difficult winter akin to that of 2010. Forecasters are predicting more snow on the way and this is bad news for gardeners and green keepers hoping to maintain healthy lawn areas.
The team at Turfland is experienced in helping homeowners and green keepers to tackle lawn maintenance issues and the winter always presents plenty of challenges. However, the prospect of increased snow cover does not bode well for those with lawns.
The Fusarium patch disease flourishes when snow covers areas of grass because of the protracted moist conditions it promotes. In 2010, gardens suffered if they did not have the right protection in place and the experts are keen to stress that good winter preparation is crucial to avoid a repeat in 2012.
A proactive approach to turf management and the application of the right treatments in good time can help make sure lawns stay disease free even in the most challenging snowy conditions.
