Our Lawn Disease & Fungus Control Services

Brown Spots in the Lawn? You Need Mr. Lawn.

Disease damage in Columbia lawns appear as brown desiccated patches of grass. These lawn damaging fungi, like brown patch and dollar spot, thrive in a warm, humid environment. A diseased lawn is easily misdiagnosed as drought or heat stressed and as a result, the most common homeowner response is to frequently water the lawn. It’s humid here in Columbia’s summers and as you can imagine, frequent watering will only cause the fungi to spread faster. We diagnose and educate homeowners and landscapers to control diseases with effective treatments and cultural practices.

Lawn Disease and Fungi

Brown Patch

By far the most common lawn disease in TN is brown patch. It can be identified by large brown patches or rings with green patches of grass in the center. It can quickly spread throughout the lawn, following the flow of water.

Dollar Spot

The second most common lawn disease in TN is Dollar Spot. This fungus can be identified by the small 1-3 inch brown spots in the lawn or by the lesions that appear on the leaf blade before foliage death.

Pythium Blight

This fungus is rare, only lawns having very poor drainage will have this disease. It can look very similar to brown patch, it has large brown rings, oftentimes with green grass in the center. During the early morning hours you can see the mycelium on the grass blades, as seen in the picture above. Pythium blight moves very fast, kills the plant completely and is by far the worst possible disease you can have in your lawn. If you suspect you have this in your lawn, stop irrigation and call us immediately.
