Monitor for Large/Brown Patch in Turf

Monitor for Large/Brown Patch in Turf

Source: UF/IFAS 2021


Diseases are problematic when all three conditions are satisfied:

  1. Disease present
  2. Susceptible plant
  3. Favorable environment

Large Patch, also known as Brown Patch, is a disease of warm season turfgrasses that rears its ugly head during the most beautiful time of the year, Florida Fall. The cooler conditions below 80 degrees combined with prolonged wetness encourages Large Patch growth in the turf.

Think about things that you can and cannot control. Temperature is managed by nature. Rain, also nature. But irrigation and fertilization, those are things completely within your control and how you manage these things will influence how well you can manage disease. Reduce irrigation as the season slows and the days become shorter and cooler. Stick to balanced fertilizers with a slow-release nitrogen source. Too much nitrogen will focus on pushing new growth resulting in a stressed-out plant less capable of preventing diseases.


Did you have a disease issue last year?

Keep records! The history of a site will help to predict potential problems and develop management strategies such as reducing irrigation. Even the best fungicides have limited ability to cure fungal issues. Fungicides stop the spread of the disease or prevent the disease from spreading. That is why recordkeeping is one of the best ways to know what to expect, how to prevent, and what to prepare if conditions are ripe for disease development.

3 Reasons Your Business Needs Professional Landscaping

3 Reasons Your Business Needs Professional Landscaping

Your business' facade is the first thing visitors see when they enter the premise. When your landscape beds are neatly trimmed and your lawn is healthy and green, it gives your customers more confidence in your business and the people running it. Professional landscaping increases the curb appeal of your business, saves you time and money, and gives you peace of mind.

Here are three reasons your business needs professional landscaping in Orlando, The Villages, Clermont, and the surrounding areas.

Professional Landscaping Increases Curb Appeal

These businesses in The Villages, FL benefit from added curb appeal thanks to our professional landscaping services.

We’ve all seen businesses that have overgrown properties with poorly-manicured lawns and messy landscape beds. These places don’t instill confidence in clients. A business that takes care of its property and outward appearance is much more trusted and gives confidence to customers that this business is established, doing well, and will take care of its clients.

A property that is well-maintained and immaculate tends to draw in more revenue and customers. Professional landscaping creates a professional, inviting atmosphere, thereby increasing the value of your property and subsequently the surrounding areas.

Landscapers Save You Time & Money

You have a business to run, and as such a lot of your time is dedicated to keeping it running and you don’t always have extra time to take care of your property. Hiring a professional landscaping company like Royal Landscape Nursery provides your ...

Groundbreaking Ideas on Managing Landscaping

Groundbreaking Ideas on Managing Landscaping

Creating a groundskeeping plan that is in line with the resort’s budget and enhanc- es the beauty of the property is a daunting task. What are some factors boards need to consider?

For a small property with little green space, maintaining the grounds
with an on-site resort staff can make sense, as is the case with Schooner II Beach and Racquet Club in Myrtle Beach. Will Potter, Regional Vice President of SPM Resorts, explains, “The board made the decision
to have resort staff manage the landscaping because the amount of space is manageable, and it is more cost effective to maintain it on a daily basis than it would be to spend the money with a landscaping company.”

However, for properties with larger common areas, opting to outsource is often more cost effective. Setting up a
quality, in-house groundskeeping operation from scratch is expensive. Storing equipment, from rakes and shovels to mowers, trimmers and blowers requires a lot of space, and creating safe storage for combustibles is important. Professional landscaping companies invest in the equipment, employees, and storage neces- sary to manage resorts’ grounds.

Jeff Lessey, Regional Vice President of SPM Resorts, quips, “For a medium or large property, your household ride-on lawn mower and weed eater just won’t cut it.” He continues, “Anyone can push a lawn mower, but will they know what to do with the bald patch that shows up in the middle of the courtyard,...
