With Fall fast approaching, North Texas is experiencing more mild days and cooler nights. Unfortunately, this weather often exposes our lawns to more diseases. One of the most common diseases we see is brown patch disease. It is called brown patch due to the circular or irregular patches of light brown to yellow grass it forms in shaded areas of lawns.
Rhizoctonia solani is the lawn fungus that causes this particular disease. We rarely see an infestation in the summertime because the long and hot days evaporate excess water. When the seasons change, the surplus water rests on the ground’s surface level for an extended period, creating an environment for the fungus to grow. It is for this reason that we find the fungus where the grass blades attach to the stolon.
The easiest way to determine if you are having a St. Augustine grass problem is to conduct a simple pull test. After removing some grass, ask a couple of questions.
If you’ve answered yes to these questions, more than likely, you have a problem. Fortunately, this lawn fungus is relatively easy to treat.
If you suspect that you have a lawn disease, please contact us at 888-233-5955. Our lawn care technicians will be happy to help you identify and develop a brown patch disease treatment plan.
* Thatch is the buildup of dead grass from mowing and/or normal decay.
