Take All Root Rot in St. Augustine Lawns

Does your St. Augustine look like this? 

If it does it mostly likely has a disease called Take-All Root Rot. As the name implies it devastates the root system of grass, limiting nutrient & water uptake. Initial symptoms of Take All Root Rot appear as light green or yellowing patches that can reach up to several feet in diameter. The roots of your grass will have a whitish appearance with sporadic black lesions. The stolons and rhizomes you see at the soil surface may also have black lesions. One of the best tools to fight the disease is the use of sphagnum peat moss. If you think you may have Take All Root Rot in your St. Augustine lawn, give us a call today for a consultation and treatment plan.
