Disease Control

Green's a great color; we're not that fond of brown (in patches or otherwise). We'll help you fight fungus before it fouls your lawn.

What is disease control…for my yard?
Those circles of brown dead grass on your lawn can mean only one: things are getting patchy. Both brown patch and large patch arediseases caused by a particular strain of fungus, though they appear at different times:

  • Brown patch thrives in the hot, humid weather of late spring and summer. The most common sign of brown patch is the appearance of roughly circular areas of thin brown grass: they may be only a few inches in diameter, or as large as several feet wide. Sometimes a patch takes the form of a brown grass ring, with recovering green grass in the middle.
  • Large patch typically manifests during early spring or fall, as warm-season grasses are transitioning into or out of their growth season. Symptoms of large patch are visibly similar, with circular areas of discolored grass. As the name implies, however, large patch tends to affect a much wider area: anywhere from 3 – 25 feet in diameter.

Our disease control treatment both combats existing fungal infections and prevents their spread.

Why to schedule disease control treatment?  
When brown patch or large patch appear, they kill your grass. Your lawn can grow back in time, but often that means waiting until the next growth season to see your grass return. Why do that to yourself? Taking care of fungus in your grass the moment you spot it is one way to make sure you can enjoy your lawn all year lawn.

When to schedule disease control for your yard  
Typically turf requires fungicide treatments in both spring and fall for best disease control. We begin spring disease control treatments in late April, and fall treatments commence around mid-September. Each seasonal treatment entails two applications, 28 days apart.
