    Who told you and which fungal disease did they claim you have?
  • Green thumb when they came to see the lawn. He didn't identify the disease by name

    Mmm. I'm always slightly suspicious of these companies, and their motive.
    Have you got a photo @david.gregory63?
    For example, it's not uncommon for lots of little toadstools/mushrooms to appear in grass, especially in wetter conditions.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    It might be red thread which can be treated by a high nitrogen lawn feed. No need to buy anything fancy or expensive though. It won't kill your lawn and routine maintenance should get rid of it.
  • Another chap came and said it needed a good scarifying which green thumb did last march! We've started to scrape the really bad patches and re seed them, but there are so many just wondering if there is anything easier!
