In the Face of Record-Breaking Rainfall

Record breaking rainfall can cause disease on plants. Most leaf spots are fortunately cosmetic and the plants will be just fine. If you have dogwoods however, fungal disease can spread into the branches and cause dieback. The good news is that it is treatable by Broccolo’s IPM experts. 
A common question this season is why are there brown patches in the lawn?” Red thread fungus is very common this year due to the excessive rain. The grass is growing so fast, using up nutrients that are normally stored in the roots during the summer drought. Broccolo lawn care specialists are fertilizing as needed to help lawns recover. Send us your photos for diagnosis at [email protected]
