Fairy Ring Tips

  • Fairy rings in a lawn are a result of fungus such as Marasmius Oreades growing thread like spores.
  • Fairy rings are dark green circles of lush grass in the lawn or may also be noticed as a group of toadstools in mid-summer.
  • Do not compost the toadstools or even the clippings to avoid spreading spores.
  • Fairy rings like dry soil so one treatment is to water and feed the lawn so the whole area goes dark green.
  • It is hard to treat Fairy rings but a fungicide containing dichlorophen may help.
  • The last alternative treatment is to dig out the infected area and returf.
