It’s that time of the year where temperatures outside are rising and lawn diseases need to be prevented. Disease is prevalent during moist/humid, hot weather. Brown patch, also known as Rhizoctonia, is most active when grass remains wet and temperatures reach 80 to 90 degrees.
If your lawn gets dark and appears to have water-soaked looking grass, which is turning into browned-out circular areas in several inches and diameters – then it has been struck with disease. Some green leaves may persist within the patch, and roots remain intact. In addition, blades may have irregular ash gray lesions with a dark brown margin running along one side. Disease spreads quickly and will destroy your lawn.
Our Estate Program protects your lawn from disease. Not only would you receive all of the same applications that you have now, but you would also get 4 fungicide applications during the summer months. One of them containing grub control, a free soil test each year and your technician on the lawn more often to detect any issues. To qualify for the Estate Program, your lawn should be well established and you must be committed to watering properly. If you qualify, now would be the time to upgrade.
Call our office now to obtain the information that you need to protect your lawn. Your lawn is an investment to your home. Like all investments, make sure you invest in the right place.
