Crown’s Landscaping & Garden Center is proud to be locally owned and operated in Winchester, Tennessee. Since we are local to the area, we have been dealing with the same pests and concerns for years. We know how to identify them, how to treat them, and how to effectively get rid of them, too.
Large patch or brown patch appears as large, unsightly symmetrical patches that can range in diameter from a few inches to a few feet. When left untreated, the center area of a patch recovers over time, resulting in a doughnut-shaped pattern.
Zoysia grass starts getting spots when it’s emerging from winter dormancy. Grass blades take on a tan-orange color and initially form small patches about the size of a dinner plate. These small patches can quickly expand to 20+ feet or more in diameter, so taking care of this disease promptly is essential for the health and appearance of your lawn.
Grubs are a a-shaped beetle larvae about a half inch in length. Lawn grubs have soft bodies with legs near the head. They feed on grassroots (and organic matter in the soil), causing sections of grass in the lawn to die. In order to get rid of grubs you must treat the pest and lawn.
Powdery mildew is a common fungus that affects a wide variety of plants, trees and shrubs. It is easily identified and appears as light grey or white powdery spots usually found on infected leaves, but can also be found underneath, or on stems, flowers, fruit or vegetables. It was cause issues if left untreated.
Aphids thrive in spring and fall and can become a major infestation very quickly. Although they will attack any part of a tree or shrub, younger growth is especially vulnerable. These pests do their damage by sucking out fluids from leaves and stems, which weakens the plant, and by spreading viruses, which could kill some plants. To spot aphids, look for small black, white, green, or pink oval-shaped pests; they can range in size from 1/16 to 1/4 inches. If left untreated, they can put out 20 generations in a single season.
