Important Update About Fall Brown Patch in Area Lawns

Brown Patch is a fungus that attacks St. Augustine and Zoysia lawns in the fall.

To understand Brown Patch, you must consider that St. Augustine and Zoysia are tropical plants. Our North Texas weather of a hot and dry summer followed by a cooler, damp fall creates an excellent environment for Brown Patch to thrive.

Recently, we’ve been seeing more and more of it in North Texas lawns, and in today’s quick video, we give you all the details on how to prevent, spot, and treat Brown.

Take The Tour of this New Lucas Landscape

Siqi and Linwen have big plans for their place in Lucas. The home sits on a large lot, about one and a half acres, and came with a straightforward builder’s landscape package in the front and no lawn, landscape, or irrigation system in the back.

With big plans for the backyard (playground, dog run, turf, and privacy screening,) they are waiting until next spring to put in a swimming pool which meant our focus this fall was their front landscape.

The home sits on a large lot, and their beautiful home is long, so our design focused on making their beds deeper with straight borders to give the house a contemporary feel.

We added needlepoint hollies on the corners to screen the backyard and frame the home. The couple loves magnolias, so we placed little gem magnolias throughout the bed and some Oklahoma redbud trees to give color.

We used carissa hollies as a medium-sized, mounding evergreen and added sunshine ligustrum, obsession nandina, purple heart, Anthony Waterer spirea, and daylilies for color.

Siqi and Linwen were delighted with our results for their front landscape. We are all looking forward to the next stage of this project – tackling their backyard in spring after the pool goes in.

How Can We Earn Your Trust?

Our guiding principle at Village Green is to grow plants, people, and relationships. This mission drives everything we do as a company and why we’ve been helping your neighbors with all the lawn, landscape, and sprinkler needs since 1980. We’ve worked hard to earn the trust of our customers, which is why it makes us so happy when they take the time to let us know how we’re doing.

Take Robin in Richardson. She was so happy with the service provided by our landscape team that she took the time to call to let us know about her experience and how Hannah went the extra step to lay down on the ground in the rain to fix the sprinkler system. How the team quickly and pleasantly adapted to changes, getting other plants as needed and offering helpful advice during the installation that ultimately improved the landscape’s overall design. And finally, how Manny and Darrius not only dug a hole for a new tree but took the extra time to review their work from the patio to ensure it would be placed in the perfect location. She went on to say that she would recommend our services to anyone looking for landscape work and that her son would call us for some work at his home.

This level of service is how we earn our customer’s trust and is what makes Village Green different from other companies.

If you are looking for help with your lawn, landscape, or sprinkler system, we invite you to read our Google reviews or ask your neighbors about their experience working with us.

Your Fall Lawn Questions Answered

As we get deeper into fall and our days grow shorter, and temperatures get cooler, we begin to transition our lawn health treatments to a fall pre-emergent designed to reduce fall and winter weeds. We also get a lot of fall-related lawn questions at this time of year, so we are sharing them and our answers with you today.

What do you recommend we do with leaves on our lawn and landscape?
Leaves left on your lawn for too long can lead to fungal problems, so it is good to rake or mulch them as you can. On the other hand, leaves in your landscape beds are good (think free mulch!)

Do you recommend installing plants in a landscape in the fall?
The answer here shocks most people, but the answer is yes. Fall and winter are two of the best times of the year in North Texas to install a landscape. When you install in fall, winter, and spring, you give your new plants time to establish before our hot and dry summer months, leading to deeper and stronger roots. And deeper and stronger roots are vital for plants to thrive in these hostile summer conditions. Village Green has the experience to install year-round and a plant warranty to give our customers peace of mind, but if you can cherry-pick the time of the year for your landscape, go with fall and winter.

What are the best plants to add fall color to our lawn?
We addressed this a few weeks ago (you can read the full story here.) We recommend pansies, violas, kale and cabbage, mums, cyclamen, pumpkins, and gourds.

Do I need to water my lawn in the fall?
YES. The most important thing you can do for your lawn’s health, other than working with Village Green, is to water the proper amount each of our four seasons in North Texas. You can download our free fall watering guide here.

If you need help with your lawn, landscape, or sprinkler system, 972-495-6990 or email Info@VillageGreen-Inc.com for more information. In business since 1980, we are locally owned and operated and have North Texas know-how and experience to deliver results and earn your trust.

Here’s How Borders Benefit your Landscape

Your landscaping at your home is an investment, and to ensure that investment is protected, it is important that you create a border for your landscape. Not only are landscape borders functional (they keep invasive grass out of your beds and keep your landscape plants in,) but they also look great and, if done correctly, complement your landscape.

When it comes to landscape borders, there are many choices (drop-edge, steel edge, composite, and stone). In today’s video Ken Hyatt, our Founder and President, show you all you need to know about the various types and details of our preferred style (and how we install them in our projects.)

Our Top Tips to Introduce Fall Color in Your Lawn

Fall officially arrived in North Texas last Thursday. This week, our temperatures are coming down, so people are thinking about getting out and adding color to their lawns (this time of year, most flower beds and borders are beginning to look tired from our long hot summer.)

It might seem counterintuitive, but fall is one of the best times to start a new landscape because your soil is still warm while our temperatures cool. This weather pattern means your plants lose less moisture through their leaves, leading to strong root growth and, in the long run, a healthier plant.

Fall is also a great time to introduce color to your yard. Our local nurseries, grocery, and hardware stores have a plentiful supply of colorful plants, and many local churches host pumpkin patches.

Here are a few of our favorites if you want to introduce some color to prepare your home for fall.

Pansies: In North Texas, if you want colorful blooms over the colder months, your go-to flower is pansies. This hardy plant can weather our crazy winters with single-digit temperatures and wintry precipitation one day and sunny weather a few days later. They can bounce back and bloom after the coldest of spells with a bit of sunshine. They will do their best with a high phosphorous fertilizer (5-30-5 ratio.) Like most flowers, they prefer loose, well-drained soil so they don’t stay wet after watering. An easy way to accomplish that is to add potting soil to the bed. Pansies are like candy to rabbits, so if you have a large population in your area, it may be challenging to grow them.

Violas: They have pansy-like blooms, except the blooms are tiny. You can plant these in similar conditions to pansies.

Mums: These are lovely fall plants. Like azaleas, they only bloom a few weeks out of the year, but when they bloom, they look great, especially with pumpkins.

Kale & Cabbage: Oddly enough, if you have rabbit problems, you are safe planting kale or cabbage. Rabbits would rather eat your pansies versus eating your vegetables! They aren’t as colorful as pansies but easy to grow. Trim off the blooms to make them look nice later in the spring.

Cyclamen: These are beautiful, delicate flowers, but our North Texas winters can be too harsh for them. I recommend planting a few for a nice change of color on your lawn or landscape.

Pumpkins & Gourds: An easy way to introduce a burst of color is by purchasing some pumpkins or gourds at a local pumpkin patch (a lot of local churches help raise money for their ongoing charity efforts by operating pumpkin patches at this time of year.)
