Turf turf: Answer: turf problems in sod


Dear Fabio,
generally the ready-made lawn plates are planted in a season (autumn or late winter) in which it is possible for the seedlings to take root quickly, so that when winter or summer arrives, the lawn is already stable and rooted, and therefore does not suffer from environmental conditions; in the same way, in every area of ‚Äč‚ÄčItaly, essences for lawn are planted, well resistant to the climatic conditions of the area itself.
So, even if our garden was prepared by planting a ready lawn, within a few weeks, the lawn plates should be practically identical to the sods of lawn sown directly in the house; so if your neighbors' lawn has not turned yellow, or the lawn has been laid down too late, and therefore you have not had time to take root before the arrival of the frost, or the problem is different.
Generally the turf seedlings are resistant and vigorous, but it happens that particular climatic conditions lead to strong stress to these plants, which then become easy prey for fungal parasites.
In fact, the fungal pests of the lawn have particular and well recognizable development: the yellowing in these cases is arranged in well-defined spots, often in roundish shapes.
If the yellowing instead is arranged according to lines, and particularly strong in some areas of the lawn, it could also be an excess of fertilizations, which have fallen too abundantly in the areas that are then yellowed.
If it is a fungal disease, you must go to the nursery and look for a product against fungal turf parasites, the nurseryman will advise you.
If, on the other hand, the lawn was not yet stable and therefore the cold has damaged it, the plants should regenerate quickly when spring arrives; wait a few weeks to see how they behave, before you worry too much.
If, on the other hand, you believe you have spread the fertilizer excessively, the rains should help you, progressively diluting the amount of mineral salts present in the soil.
Since this is a lawn in clods, if the problem persists and the lawn shows no signs of improving, you should be able to easily remove the ruined clods and replace them with new and healthy clods.
If the lawn is being ruined conspicuously and in a widespread manner, the problem may lie in the way the clods were laid, or in the ground in which they are placed: if the earth has a large excess of water, or if the clods are not been positioned correctly, preparing first a base on which to make them take root, then perhaps the lawn will have to be redone, but already now you should see in addition to yellowing, areas with small plants completely dry and dark.
