Rust is a turf disease caused by various fungi but usually the Pucciniaor Uromyces species. Rust is caused by warm wet weather in Spring, Summer or Autumn and sometimes also during Winter.

It is visible by orange or red grass leaves and sometimes closer to Winter, black powder on the leaves which are spores that can spread infection when the grass is growing.

Rust can slow the grass growth and infected areas can turn yellow.

Rust is caused by warm wet weather and underfed, unhealthy lawns are more susceptible to attack. However, the feeds that Lawnsavers Lawn Treatment Services apply, Hollow Tine Aeration, Scarification (if Thatch or Moss are present) and advice we give about mowing, watering and other advice all help to promote a healthy lawn which will make the lawn less susceptible to attack. However, the main reason for Rust is weather conditions; this is when a fungicide may need to be applied.

Lawnsavers Lawn Treatment Services can apply a fungicide to eradicate Rust.
