Lawn Disease: BROWN PATCH
Here in Knoxville, Brown Patch (also called large brown patch or Rhizoctonia blight) is the most common disease that threatens our lawns. Brown patch is a fungal disease that can present a serious threat to our lawns. We offer a disease control program that will help insure that brown patch lawn disease does not can extensive damage to your lawn.
Brown patch commonly starts as a small spot and can quickly spread outwards in a circular or horseshoe pattern up to a couple of feet wide. Some times, while expanding outwards, the inside of the circle will recover, leaving the brown areas resembling a smoke-ring. Brown patch can harm a lawn's appearance and cause permanent loss of grass plants that are less than 1 year old.
If you suspect that your lawn has had brown patch lawn disease in the past, there's good chances that it will be back. Our trained staff will advise you if your lawn has already been infected and what steps we can take to stop the spread.
