Prevent turf disease and the spread of lawn fungus today by contacting us for your free consultation.
Common Texas Lawn Diseases
Two of the most common lawn diseases and fungus in the Brazos County area include spring and fall brown patch disease and gray leaf spot.
If your grass is browning in certain areas and that browning appears to be spreading, you may have brown patch disease caused by the Rhizoctonia fungus. You can tell when you have brown patch when the patches in your lawn have an outer, smokey ring that can leave the circular patch resembling a frog eye. The Rhizoctonia fungus can remain dormant in the soil until temperature conditions are just right which means getting your lawn treated to prevent the disease as soon as possible is a good idea.
Included in our treatment plans is prevention against fall brown patch disease so that the ugly, brown circles never show up in your lawn at all!
Our Professional Lawn Disease Treatment
Part of being the lawn care experts in the College Station area is knowing the different kinds of diseases are prevalent from native fungi in warm and cool-season grasses here in Texas. However, knowing is only half of the battle. We also treat and prevent these diseases from happening.
Since Texas is known for our warmer climate, the humidity mixed with the heat promotes fungus growth if not treated, especially during rainy and wet spells or simply from over-watering.
If these ugly diseases are present in your lawn or you’re looking to prevent them, simply consult with us on a proper watering schedule, care and maintenance for your diseased lawn, or to have fungicide professionally applied to your lawn.
Our treatments have brown patch preventative mixtures to prevent the disease from ever popping up in your lawn!

Lawn disease and fungus are relatively not-well-known subjects in lawn care. Here are our most frequently asked questions on the subject.
How do I know if I have a lawn is infected by fungi?
Dead grass doesn’t typically spread outward. If your lawn looks like it’s dying and it’s spreading outward from a particular spot or spots, you may have a lawn fungus. Although, if you’re unsure, feel free to call us to set up a free appointment and consultation and get our take on it.
What are the steps to treating my lawn disease?
The first step is determining what your lawn is suffering from and what the cause of it is from. Sometimes it can be due to the weather, sometimes it can be as simple as it being over-watered. Once we know what disease we’re dealing with we can take the appropriate measures.
Before any of this happens, you can simply give us a call for a free consultation and assessment of your lawn.
Are fungicides safe for children and pets?
Yes, the fungicides we use are safe for humans and pets at the relatively, low amounts that we are applying during any given treatment.
We just ask that the lawn is kept off until the treatment dries.
What should I do after a fungicide treatment?
It depends on the severity of the disease such as how long it’s been going on and how far it has spread. Our recommendation may be as simple as practicing good watering habits or dragging a hose across your lawn to remove standing dew in the mornings. It may also include top seeding or aerating and dethatching to improve air circulation.
What caused the disease?
Typically high-humidity and hot temperatures create an environment where fungi thrive. However, it may not be the weather’s fault at all. Over-watering or watering at the wrong times of day could also be the cause of the disease. Either way, get ahold of us today to get a professional opinion and look at your options on treatment.
