Having googled it it seems the more accepted approach seems to go down the organic route. Proper lawn care regimes and appropriate feeding at the correct times. Garlic drenches and neem oil applications. Some try moss killers as well.
Being as more people are going in the organic route it does make sense to try those treatments first. Chemicals often cause more damage in the long run and good soil health is essential for good plant growth.
Lawns are often where these options clash but I find personally good lawn care in the first place means there is nothing more to do than feed it twice a year.
