Lawn Brown Patch and Fertilizer

Posted: Updated:

Gary: On this episode of Lawn & Garden we're talking about the lawn. How's it looking? John says, "If it's not looking too well, there might be a few things you have to do."

John: Yeah, there are several things that are gonna be popping up in September, October, November; one of those things is brown patch.  That's something you're gonna have to deal with by catching it early.  When you start seeing these spots yellowing and look like they're not growing anymore those are the first symptoms. You wanna start putting the products out.

I have several right here, the first one right here is this Honor Guard.  It's a concentrate for if you have a large lawn. People that don't have a large lawn you can use the one with a hose in sprayer, but just spray the affected areas, that's all you have to do. Usually it's gonna be in lower areas where water stays a little longer, that's where this disease starts.  It only grows during the fall and the spring, it doesn't grow during the summer.  We also have granules if you want to put it out in a fertilizer spreader, it's the same product so just use whatever is easier for you.

For the people that want to fertilize right now, which I know a lot of people tell you not to fertilize right now because it does produce new growth for different diseases, but this product doesn't do that.  This is a natural product you can put it out wet, dry, anytime.  There's no burning, nothing like that, it's natural and it greens it up. This is what I use in my lawn.  It keeps it dark green, but it doesn't produce growth, which I don't want, I don't need to mow any more than I already do.

As a reminder, on Saturday, September the 14th, from 10am to 11:30am we're gonna have a master gardener come in.  She's gonna be showing about square foot gardening, what to plant now and how to do it, how to set it up, she know it all.  Her name is Theresa Guidry and she does a great job.
