We are unmatched in our professionalism, experience and success when it comes to lawn care. One threat to your lawn you may be experiencing frustration with is take-all patch.
If you’re managing a golf course or other lawn or landscape consisting of bentgrasses like St. Augustine’s grass, a danger you need to be on the lookout for is Gaeumannomyces graminis, known colloquially as take-all patch. This is an unpleasant fungus that can be a real problem for your grass.
If you have take-all patch in your lawn or golf course green, you will probably know it. As the name would imply, this fungus takes the form of a dead area on your lawn, a large spot of reddish-brown or yellow dead grass in the middle of your bentgrass, possibly with bluegrass or other grassy weeds in the middle. Take-all patch can thrive whether it is hot or cold and usually makes itself known at the end of spring or beginning of summer.
Take-all patch kills all the healthy grass around it — leaving only the weeds — and, if left untreated, can grow over six inches per year. It can eventually take up as much as three feet of your lawn, making it look patchy, brown and unsightly. The sooner you take steps to protect your lawn from take-all patch, the better.
Take-all patch can be a year-round problem in Florida, which is why you need central Florida’s year-round lawn care experts to take care of it. Bee Green has the tools and specialists to protect you from all the basic threats to your lawn, from insects to weeds to fungi like take-all patch. We design our systemic treatment to resolve your lawn health problem as quickly as possible and prevent it from returning.
Our approach to take-all patch will be to treat your lawn at least twice a year — usually in the Spring and Fall — to make sure the fungus does not get a chance to take root and spread. We use fungicide treatments carefully structured to kill the fungus while leaving the rest of your lawn lush and beautiful.
