Treating Brown Patch

Something you need to be on the look out for is Brown Patch. It is pretty common in this area. You will see it more with the St Augustine grass. It can be treated with a fungicide but remember that fungicides are only active for about 14 days. What that means is that it is really hard to prevent unless you want to treat your yard every 14 days. Once you treat it and it doesn’t go away, you are going to have to treat it again.  Something else to think about… if you are having to apply multiple treatments you are going to have to alternate your chemicals. Sometimes the fungus can build up a resistance.  If you have any questions or are seeing this in your yard, send us a picture, give us a call.  Have a great day!
