If you live in Georgia, you know that summer weather can get hot, muggy and sticky. Welcome to southern humidity. Humidity is essentially the amount of water vapor in the air. However, humidity does more than just make your hair frizzy, it can also affect the health and growth of your lawn.
At Mobile Joe’s Landscaping, we understand how to protect your turf from the extra humidity that we see in Georgia.
High humidity levels can create a favorable environment for fungal diseases such as dollar spot, brown patch, and Pythium blight to thrive. These diseases can cause discoloration, thinning, and even death of grass. It is important that you recognize these brown patches or other signs of lawn disease sooner rather than later so that we can save your lawn.
Slow Grass Growth
Grass may grow more slowly in high humidity because the moisture in the air can make it difficult for water to evaporate from the soil. This can lead to waterlogged soil and reduced nutrient uptake.

At Mobile Joe’s Landscaping, our team of lawn care experts is fully equipped to prevent lawn disease and stunted growth that high humidity can cause in your grass. We can also treat your grass if lawn damage has already occurred.
