Fairy Rings in Your Lawn!

Do you have a ring or circle in your St. Augustine? At first glance, you might be thinking UFO landing sites…but more likely it's a fairy ring. This phenomenon is caused by a fungus and it can damage your turf. Areas previously covered with trees or fill which contained stumps or logs are prime candidates for development of fairy rings. The fungus decomposes organic matter in the soil that is provided by old stumps and thatch. The fungus grows from a small point and then slowly enlarges until it's a circle or semi-circle. 

As it grows, the fungus limits water absorption in the soil, causing dead rings or circles in the lawn. The grass at the outer edges of the circle will die as the ring grows. The rings of fungus can continue growing in the same location for many years and can grow to almost 20-feet in diameter!
