June 7th, 2024 by Tuff Turf Molebusters
An overly watered lawn can lead to various diseases.


Use this guide to prevent and treat lawn diseases caused by excessive moisture.


  1. Water Deeply and Infrequently: The infrequency helps encourage deep root growth.
  2. Water Early in the Morning: This helps grass blades dry out during the day, reducing fungal risk.
  3. Check Soil Moisture: Ensure soil needs water by probing it before watering. The screwdriver trick works great.
  4. Mow Properly: If a diseases shows up, raise your mower deck and let the grass grow a little longer than normal.
  5. Avoid Night Watering: Cool sunless nights create an environment in the yard for fungus and diseases to flourish.
  6. Aerate Regularly: Improve soil drainage and reduce compaction by performing a core aeration every other season.
  7. Spot Water: Focus on dry spots to prevent overwatering other areas.
