South Florida Lawn Care

Have you ever stepped outside and seen that your lawn has developed brown spots? Droughts, hot temperatures, and increased traffic are a few reasons why your grass is less than healthy. To ensure your grass is lush green over these hot South Florida months, homeowners should understand what these brown patches are and how you can prevent them.

Brown patch fungus is also referred to as a large patch. This fungal disease is commonly seen in South Florida when rainfall, high humidity, or excessive irrigation leaves the turf damp for more than 48 hours. These patches are often 1 ft. in diameter, and if they go untreated, they can grow and spread throughout the lawn. These patches emerge for several reasons, including lawn pests, diseases, nutritional deficiencies, improper fertilizers or irrigation, and inconsistent mowing heights.

To remove these brown patches from your lawn, consider adding these tips to your lawn care routine:

  • Water your lawn as needed, at least 4-6 inches in depth
  • Mow your lawn at the recommended height
  • Prevent thatch buildup by removing grass clippings
  • Consider designing a landscape to provide the proper amount of sunlight throughout your lawn
  • Contact your local South Florida lawn control company for a free lawn analysis and an ongoing lawn maintenance plan
