Hello, I’m Dusty Montiel with One Two Tree Inc. and have been in the professional lawn care business for 11 years.
I’m also a State Certified Pest Control Operator specializing lawn and ornamentals & general house pest. I wanted to share a common lawn problem South Floridian's face this time of the year.
The weather in South Florida this time of the year causes an increased amount of large patch fungus. The cool night's, early mornings (60-70 degrees), and built up dew in combination with humid afternoons will do it.
"How do I get this fungus and why?"
The Large brown fungus is inevitable with these weather patterns. We need to apply our focus to combating it while minimizing damage.
Here are a few ways to prevent added stress:
- Clean mower blades
- Sharpened mower blades
- The height of the lawn
- Heavy shade areas require less water
- Check irrigation heads for leaks
- Verify the timer is set to the right time and date
Last but not least
