5 Tips to Fight Zoysia Brown Patch Cumming, GA
lawn with brown patches

Countless Georgia yards are covered in Zoysia grass. Zoysia is a highly durable grass that looks full and attractive as well. Unfortunately, no grass is perfect. Zoysia is known having a harmful and unsightly disease called Zoysia Brown Patch. This is especially common in the late spring after a wet winter or when damp, overcast weather frequently occurs. You’ll confirm Zoysia Brown Patch when you notice that some areas of your turf are not greening up like the rest of your yard during the spring.

Once you know you have Zoysia Brown Patch threatening your landscape, it is important to understand how to control. Since this grass problem involves disease, it can spread quickly if appropriate action is not taken. Here are some quick tips to ensure your Zoysia Brown Patch doesn’t take over and ruin your entire yard:

  1. Improve drainage in your yard, especially in low-lying areas.
  2. Implement a slow-release nitrogen fertilizer in your soil’s diet.
  3. Decrease thatch build-up by mowing often.
  4. Keep your mower deck clean and fungus-free.
  5. Consider a fungicide program.

What our clients say about us

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
