From time to time your lawn may suffer from a disease, this is normal and hard to avoid but do not worry, at Greensleeves lawn care we offer a range of specialist treatments that can help control lawn diseases as they occur.


The most common diseases we see on British lawns are “Snow Mould” – (Microdochium nivale) and “Red Thread” (Laetisaria fuciformis).

See our advice pages for more detail on each of these diseases as well as other problems that may occur in your lawn.


The first step is to correctly identify what problem, if any, your lawn is suffering from and then decide the correct course of action. Greensleeves have access to, and will as appropriate, select from a range of professional products that are suitable and approved for use to control lawn problems.

What to expect

Whilst it is often very easy to control or kill a fungal turf disease once it has been correctly diagnosed it is more difficult to prevent it from returning, sometimes this can happen within a short period of time. It is important therefore to follow a sound turf maintenance program to ensure your lawn is in the best health possible to avoid suffering from these issues. Your lawn manager will be happy to discuss this with you.
