St. Augustine is a tropical plant. It doesn’t like 9 degree weather and it doesn’t like 109 degree weather with no rain so when it goes through stressful times like we’ve had this year it gets even by being susceptible to a fungus like Brown Patch. We are seeing more brown patch than normal this year so if you’re taking care of your own lawn and you have St. Augustine it might not hurt to take a look to see if it’s in your lawn too. What should you do? We use a fungicide called PCNB that works both to prevent brown patch if applied early enough or to stop it from spreading.
