Tips on how to fix powdery mildew


Alright guys, let’s talk more about grass. Let’s talk about what you can be doing things that we are seeing. We are at a lawn here that we take care of in Draper doing a fertilization application and we noticed we have this lawn if you can see here you see these blades of grass that have this white mildew all over it. This is actually called powdery mildew. So basically it’s getting overwater. There’s not enough sunlight back here. If you look at this house, it is the north side of a pretty much three stories right here because it’s a walkout basement. So this doesn’t get hardly any sun and it’s just getting too much water. So hopefully preferably we prefer not to have to put a fungicide down on this grass. If you can cut back the watering, then this stuff tends to go away this white stuff. Basically, you just look at it, this stuff will rub off that’s how you know it’s white, powdery mildew. A really good tip. Look at your sprinklers This is a sprinkler nozzle. If you see on the tip there you have a flathead screw sorry it’s not very focused right there. You can take a little flathead screwdriver and start turning this turn it righty tidy means it will tighten it down and it will allow less water out of this one particular nozzle. That way you don’t just turn the minutes down because there’s a chance that the same exact zone has areas of tons of sunlight. So just in these areas with a ton of shade, especially if you have this powdery mildew tightened down these nozzles slightly so you see less water coming out of these nozzles that will really help and it will reduce the amount of mold powdery mildew, fungus and also if you have too much water and Chiti areas the lawn will just be thinned out and it’ll drown out the roots and go down to bare dirt eventually. So hopefully this helps. If you need help with lawn fertilization or pest control. We would love to help you out. Give us a call. We’d love to help you otherwise, hope you have a good day.
