Brown Patch Disease – What is It?
Tall fescue lawns are looking great right now. However, the hot, humid weather headed this way brings the potential for lawn diseases. These can be very detrimental to lawns in our area Virginia Beach, Chesapeake & other Hampton Roads cities, causing thinning and browning that can only be repaired by aerating and seeding in the fall.
Here are some tips on preventing fungus.
Proper cultural practices can help minimize the onset and damage from lawn disease. Be sure to water deeply and infrequently, during the early morning hours. Don’t water your yard at night. Watering at night, keeping that grass damp overnight with high humidity and high night time temperatures creates prime growing conditions for brown patch fungus.
Also, always mow the grass at 3.5 to 4 inches. However, if conditions are favorable, lawn disease can still attack a healthy stand of turf.
