Lawn Care Questions and Answers – June
Q. I have large brown patches, like circles, on my lawn. They are very unsightly. What can I do about them?
Mrs. M. Jones, Virginia Water
A. If the weather has been hot and humid it could be that you have brown patch fungus. It is controllable. The regime of watering only once a week and thoroughly will help by letting the lawn dry out in between. You can apply a lawn fungus control product every other week for six weeks.
