Fungus Taking Over Your Lawn?

Although it seems that we are starting to get a glimpse of summer, temperatures still can dip below the average. That being said, brown patch fungus is a familiar culprit associated with the weather change. Have no fear, we have compiled a few tips that all Floridians can take heed to to allow that yard to persevere through those cooler, shorter days this season!

  • Important: Your lawn does not need as much water when the temperatures drop below 70 degrees at night time. Brown patch fungus typically shows up when a lawn is too wet in these temperatures. It is very important to keep your lawn dry during cold evenings.
  • Rake up those leaves! Without proper sunlight, leaves can act as a catalyst for all types of patches and fungus that can be detrimental to any lawn. Conditions like this will promote more weeds as well — yuck!
  • Green grass in the winter. . . How?! If you’re dealing with a dying lawn, overseeding can be the best remedy! If you overseed your grass that is beginning to wither, cool weather grass seeds can give it the boost it needs!

A sure-fire way to ensure a lush and healthy lawn year round!

Sure, some of these tips may seem pretty obvious, but consistency is key! Your lawn should be treated like an extended family member. Brown patch fungus is in the soil year round but only activates when temperatures drop, so be on the lookout!
