Common Fungal Diseases in the Southeast:

Brown Patch Fungus

Common in Fescue, St. Augustine and Centipede lawns

  • One of the most destructive of all turfgrass diseases
  • Most common in Fescue lawns in late spring and early summer when temperatures start to rise
  • Caused by different strains of Rhizoctonia solani
  • Develops when the daytime temperatures are 75-90 degrees Fahrenheit and humid, nighttime temperatures are above 60 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Once started, Brown Patch lawn disease spreads fast
  • First appears as circular areas of brown and dead grass surrounded by a narrow, dark ring

Preventative Fungicide treatments May to September are your best weapon against Brown Patch.

If you suspect you have Brown Patch, it should be treated immediately.

Zoysia Patch

Common in Zoysia grass

  • Occurs in the spring and fall—warm days and cool nights—when grass is coming out of or into dormancy
  • Begins as small circles of 6 inches across and can grow as large as twenty feet
  • The center of the ring is filled with brown, damaged grass, while the circumference has a distinctive orange hue
  • Most common in lawns that have thick thatch, poor drainage, shade and restrictive air circulation
  • Damage can last until warmer weather allow for recovery and active growth
  • Doesn’t affect roots, so grass will grow back

This patch will not go away without proper fungicide treatment. The good news is there are preventative fungicides you can apply to prevent this disease and we can help with this!

Dollar Spot Disease

Common in Bermuda lawns

  • Caused by a fungus that lives in the soil—Sclerotinia homoeocarpa
  • Most active from late spring through early fall during humid weather and warm days
  • Small, white or straw-colored circles about the size of a silver dollar
  • Grass looks brown, almost dormant when disease is present
  • Attacks the leaf blades, not the roots
  • After treatment, it may take several weeks for symptoms to disappear

If untreated these spots will eventually grow together, leaving large patches of dead-looking grass in your lawn.
