Spring and Summer Fungicide Applications


Our Spring and Summer Fungicide Applications are available to help resist the damage that the most common diseases cause during this time of year.  Dollar Spot in Bermuda and Zoysia, Brown Patch in Fescue,  and Zoysia Patch are some of the most common during the spring and hot summer months in North Georgia.  We recommend a minimum of 2 applications to control these diseases, but more may be necessary.  (These applications are included and provided in our Premium Program.)
 
  • Dollar Spot:                                                                                                                                 Bermuda and Zoysia lawns are susceptible to Dollar Spot in the late spring and hot summer months. It can be recognized by a 1 to 2 inch in diameter tan or rust colored circular spots in the lawn. If left untreated, the spots may grow together to form large irregular discolored patches in the lawn. Infected leaf blades have light tan lesions with reddish brown borders. You may also notice cobweb-like mycelium when your grass is wet with dew. While preventative measures are almost impossible to predict, if you notice these spots in your lawn, we can help control them with fungicide applications.
  • Brown Patch:                                                                                                                              Almost all Fescue lawns will get Brown Patch to one degree or another during the summer months. Factors that increase this disease are improper watering, poor drainage, poor air circulation, dull mower blades and mowing at the wrong height. It can be recognized by the leaf blades first appearing water soaked and dark, followed by the wilting of leaf blades then turning a light brown color as the tissue dies.
  • Zoysia Patch:                                                                                                                              If you notice discolored arcs or large circles in your Zoysia lawn you are most likely experiencing an advanced case of Zoysia Patch. This disease is most prominent during the winter to spring seasonal transition phase, primarily at “green up”. A variety of factors contribute to this disease, which can include compacted soil excessive thatch buildup, and unseasonably warm temperatures during the winter months. The treatment of Zoysia Patch involves professional applications of fungicides applied to the lawn.
