Common plant problems in the Atlanta area
PESTS, PROBLEMS & SOLUTIONS
Atlanta’s growing season provides plants with almost year around growth. Because of this long growing season pest populations can build to thresholds where plant damage can occur. The natural and man-manipulated environment in Atlanta can also cause stress and eventual decline in our landscapes and forests. The following is a list of some of the more common pests, cultural problems and environmental problems we may encounter year to year.

Dollar Spot

Dollar spot appears as small silver dollar size blotches, usually in warm season turf. The key word here is blotches. Very seldom do we see the distinct spots caused by dollar spot fungus that are common on golf greens. The presence of dollar spot can indicate compaction problems, too much thatch, or is simply an indicator that available nutrient levels are dropping and should be replenished.
