Georgia Rust GrassGrass is green, right? What if your grass is a dark green, light green, turning yellow, or even red? The color of your grass is how your grass is trying to speak to you. Here is what your lawn is saying:

Dark Green:

If your lawn is dark green, it is producing a healthy amount of chlorophyll. When your lawn is dark green, that’s your lawn showing you its gratitude.

Yellow ‘ish’:

Lawn is producing less chlorophyll, which means it needs some more nutrients. If you have a yellow lawn, it’s screaming “feed me”.


Red can mean several things. First off, there are a few species of grass that are naturally red, so make sure you know what kind of grass you have. Second off, in winter and colder seasons your lawn can naturally shift towards a redish color, which is natural. If you’re having great weather and your lawn is still red, then your lawn may have a disease or be in stress.

Orange (typically spots):

Orange means fungi, which isn’t good. There are usually spots of orange when there is rust disease or other forms of fungi in the area. This color means that your grass needs treatment fairly soon.

We hope that you now understand just a little bit better what is happening with your lawn with each different color. If you need Lawn Care Georgia we’re here to help.
