What is lawn rust?
When lawn rust forms, it is a sign that you need a change in lawn care routine. It serves as a light warning that there is a fungal infection present that requires a little bit of attention.
Like many plants, your lawn is susceptible to rust, which is very distinct and clear when it appears. The impact of rust is more aesthetic than it is directly dangerous to the lawn, however, if a lawn has rust it means it could more easily become infected with other more harmful diseases.
How do I spot lawn rust?
Rust is arguably the lawn disease that is the easiest to spot, as the rust is very noticeable so you would most likely see it at a glance. However, it might get missed or ignored if someone isn’t educated on why the grass changes like it does during the development of the disease. So here’s what to look out for:
- Discolouration. An orangey-brown tint forming on the grass.
- Weak growth. The grass noticeably not growing as well.
- Thinning. Weakened grass can cause a lawn to look patchy if the blades start to thin.

I would highly recommend Greensleeves
I would highly recommend Greensleeves who restored our baron-looking lawn which had been eaten away by chauffer grubs to a lush green fantastic lawn in a matter of months and we now have them every few months to keep our lawn looking lush and beautiful by treating it. Also lovely pleasant and helpful staff. Thank you Greensleeves.
Greensleeves have done a fabulous job…
Greensleeves have done a fabulous job on the lawn in our new house – turning it from a weed-infected patch of green to a true grass lawn. All in the space of a few months during initially very challenging weather conditions. Very happy with the progress that has been made – thank you.
Good service and good people!
I have been using Greensleeves for a few years now and I am pleased with both their products and service and they definitely know what they are talking about. They come on the day they say they will come, they execute their work quickly and efficiently and above all our lawn has really benefitted from their service.
We have only just started using Greensleeves but our impression of the company so far is very good. All contact with them has been dealt with promptly and professionally. The first lawn treatment was carried out as arranged today and my husband had a couple of queries regarding the lawn and these were answered in a friendly and informative manner.
This Company do a great job of keeping my lawn in tip-top condition. They are very knowledgeable and I feel very reasonable for a job that definitely requires a level of expertise. I initially tried treating my lawn myself but got nowhere near the results of Greensleeves. Would highly recommend.
