Brown Patch and What To Do About It

This is the time of year that we really start to see a lot of the Brown Patch fungus in St. Augustine in Southeast Texas.  It doesn’t normally kill your grass but it can make for an ugly yard!

Brown Patch, also known as Rhizoctonia blight, starts as small circular brown areas in your yard around 10″ in diameter and can grow up to 10 feet.  I did a search today for information about Brown Patch and how to treat it and came across a good article on The Livingston Parish News website out of Livingston, LA and I thought I’d just link to this excellent article instead of trying to recreate the information here.

We do talk about it on our own website in our FAQs if you want to talk a look at that also.

Once we get a good hard freeze that normally stops Brown Patch from spreading but it can do a lot of damage before that happens.  Check out the link above for some good info on dealing with Brown Patch and thanks for stopping by our site today!
