Lawn disease | Scott's DiseaseEX



all right so every year I tell myself I'm not gonna worry about putting a fun just head down I'm not gonna worry about fungus cuz I don't want to spend the money and every year I get fungus without fail I get brown patch every single year so this year I'm getting on top of the game and I'm gonna put down a preventive so I'm going with Scotts disease X we're gonna go with the preventive rate [Applause] [Applause] all right so really quickly I want to go over STDs with you guys that's oil transmitted diseases and so that's just a joke by the way though people don't actually call it that and so the first thing I want to talk about to you is brown patch and so brown patch fungus as you see in this picture right here it's kind of more spread out it's not really concentrated to one little circle kind of like we'll see what dollar spot and how you tell it's brown patch is just basically by the lesions on the grass blade as you see here dollar spot kind of like the name there silver dollar sized spots in the yard and it also has lesions on the grass blades but they look a little different as you can see here and so what I encourage you to do if we notice your yard starting to turn brown get out in the lawn and look down into the soil and that the grass blades and so it could be a few different things it could just be your yard is dry you need to water it it could be grubs or you might have brown patch or some other disease so get your hand down in there if your yard is dry it's a dry day and it's wet and sticky in there that's what she said and possibly you see these lesions on the grass blades and yeah you might have brown patches might have a large body might have one of these other lawn diseases from there if you already have it you can put down Scotts disease access for curative rate which is gonna be four pounds per thousand square feet or you could go to your big box store and you could get the Bayer hose and sprayer with the pro pecan is all in it and you spray it on your yard and so the way that I'm gonna go today I'm gonna be putting out the disease X which is a granular and I'm gonna be putting in a preventative rate and from there I actually have this on hand in case I see any spots in my yard that look like fungus or disease coming into my yard I can go out and kind of zone spray because I kind of know I know my lawn really well I know the spots that are susceptible to getting brown patch or dollar spot they're there typically the spots that that stay wetter longer maybe because of drainage issues and so that causes the lawn to be more susceptible to getting a disease or fungus so I can go out and I can zone spray those spots I don't have to spray my entire yard and then just that's just really nice that's all I've got today I'm not gonna go into any more depth about any disease or how to prevent it if you have any questions leave them in the comment section below and I'll try to answer them but with that let's get to spread like I said we're gonna be applying Scott's disease X to try and prevent any lawn fungus from coming in here so this bag says it covers up to 5,000 square feet so if you are going the preventative route you don't yet have disease but you're trying to prevent it 2 pounds per thousand will cover that 5,000 square feet but if you're trying to hear your lawn of the disease this don't doesn't cover covers 2,500 square feet okay so how we're gonna apply this just like my last video when I showed you how I apply fertilizer to the yard how I weigh it out we're gonna do the exact same thing so if you haven't seen that video link in the description below go check that out we're gonna be using this scale that I use with this bucket I'm applying the preventative race that's two pounds per thousand so like I said I have 2,000 square feet here so I need 4 pounds it's not very much you're not gonna be putting out a whole lot of product so you have to be a lot more precise than vs. if you're doing like the milorganite where you're putting out 15 almost 15 pounds per thousand square feet so we're gonna weigh this out we're gonna put it in the spreader and we're gonna get to it okay and just like when I spread my fertilizer I like to do a pass north and south throughout the yard and then I like to go back east and west that way I get him [Applause] all right so that's gonna do it for today's video how to put Scots disease X on the lawn thanks for checking it out if you have any questions leave them in the comments section below be sure and subscribe see you next time
