We prevent brown patch disease with a 3-step fungicide program.

Brown patch lawn disease at a property in Gastonia, NC.

Lawns that are seeded with fescue grass in the metro-Charlotte area are more susceptible to this fungus because of the combination of fertilization, high humidity, and regular watering. These factors create the perfect environment for Brown Patch to grow in. Even if you don't fertilize your lawn that often, summers in our area are always hot and humid, causing two of those three elements to always be present.

Our team understands this, which is why we offer a program that treats your lawn with fungicide 3 times throughout the spring and summer seasons. The saying, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" could not be more accurate when dealing with Brown Patch in fescue turf. The best way to avoid these large patches in your lawn is to take careful preventative measures. We offer our fungicide program in late April or early May and apply treatments every 28 days.

Other common lawn diseases in the Charlotte area include copper spot, dollar spot, fairy ring, and large patch.

Conditions that contribute to lawn fungus include excessive thatch, overwatering, and improper mowing.

  • Poor drainage causes water to pool on your lawn and that paired with humidity creates a harboring ground for fungus.
  • An excessive layer of thatch can weaken your lawn, causing it to be more susceptible to diseases.
  • Overwatering your grass puts your lawn in a continuously damp state which creates a ripe environment for fungus to grow.
  • Improper mowing like cutting your grass too low will scalp your lawn and deplete its storage of nutrients.
  • Soil compaction prevents proper circulation of water, oxygen, and sunlight which weakens your lawn's defense.
