How to Prevent Brown Patch in your St. Augustine Lawn

Late spring is the time of the year in North Texas when our temperatures are getting warmer, and we get a lot of rain. These conditions can cause Brown Patch in St. Augustine lawns.

How do we go about fighting this nasty little fungus that thrives on warm, damp conditions?

Prevention is the best bet in spring (in fall, we can treat it with a fungicide.) The good news is that Brown Patch generally only makes your lawn look bad. It won’t kill it. Many people leave Brown Patch untreated, taking steps to prevent it after it goes away.

If you want to prevent Brown Patch in your St. Augustine lawn, we recommend the following tips.

• Sprinkle in the morning (to avoid water standing overnight.)
• Avoid allowing water to puddle in the lawn.
• Use a low nitrogen fertilizer in early spring (brown patch fungus feeds on nitrogen.)
• Use a preventative such as PCNB before brown Patch occurs.
• If you see brown patches in your lawn, spot treat the areas to prevent them from getting larger.
• And the best tip? Hire Village Green to handle your fertilization and weed control.

Our Signature Fertilization & Weed Control + Insect Protection Plan allows Village Green to be in your yard every month to month and a half. And we’re not just spreading fertilizer on these visits. We are inspecting your lawn and looking for potential problems that we will fix or notify you of to decide how to handle them best.

St. Augustine Lawn Update for North Texas

The fallout from the North Texas February winter storm is still affecting many in North Texas.

It is especially true for those who have St. Augustine lawns. It is no big surprise that some St. Augustine lawns are showing signs of freeze damage. After all, St. Augustine is a tropical plant and does not do well when temperatures bottom out to zero!

Be sure and watch our St. Augustine video update below on what we are are seeing in the field.

Loropetalum (a.k.a. Purple Fringe Flower) Update for North Texas

In early April, we received so many calls from people worried about their fringe flowers (also known as Loropetalum.) These popular plants took a real hit from the February freeze. I did a video specifically on Loropetalum (watch it here https://youtu.be/CpzRgOBtxFg​).

I’m happy to share some good news from all that freezing weather we had in February in this video update. Not so fast on Lororpetalum (also known as Chinese Fringe Flower), we see signs of life for some of them in North Texas.

Be sure and watch the video to learn tips on what you can do to help your Loropetalum come back.
