Brown Spots on Your Lawn

Do You Have Brown Spots on Your Lawn? Your Yard May Have Brown Patch Fungus Disease!

Brown spots in your grass are unsightly and very discouraging to proud yard owners. Believe it or not, this phenomenon is not normally from dried-out grass that you forgot to water. Indeed, the culprit you’re most likely encountering is Brown Patch fungus, a lawn disease that can start for several reasons and tends to be prolific in the hot, humid months of summertime. The resulting irregular brown patches all over your lawn make it look like your yard is dying, when in fact most lawns recover completely when fall returns with cooler weather.
