When mother nature delivers a soggy spring or a summer heat wave, it stresses your lawn. Stressed or unhealthy lawns are much more likely to develop disease (aka. fungus); so the better you care for your lawn, the better the grass will be able to handle the natural conditions in your area.
Fungal diseases in your lawn can take on a variety of forms. From dead-looking brown patches to highly visible spots, threads, rings, or slimes, once fungus strikes your yard, it can be difficult to treat.

Aerating and overseeding your lawn are two jobs that should be done annually. Aeration opens up the lawn and allows for more air, water and nutrients to penetrate the root zone.
