Fescue lawns are susceptible to a fungus in the spring and summer called Brown Patch.  When we have moisture and humidity in the overnight hours the fungus can spread quickly and damage or kill fescue turf.  An effective way to stop the fungus is to apply a fungicide before it occurs.  Preventative fungicides last 30 days.  Applications should take place May-Aug to protect your lawn.  

Joe Morris is QCLL agronomic guru.  Once a month he answers FAQ sent in by QCLL Customers.  To submit your question for Joe, just email him at and he will be glad to give you his expert advice.
QCLL Customer:  I have Japanese Beetles infesting my shrubs?
This time of year, we normally see a lot of insects buzzing around. Japanese Beetles can cause damage to the foliage located in your landscape. We do offer a treatment to help control these insects. It has a residue value of up to 30 days, but needs to be reapplied to deliver the best results in controlling these insects.
QCLL Customer: What is the best height to mow my lawn during the summer?
We know it is going to be hot out there this summer and fescue lawns can become stressed out. We mow our lawns on a higher setting of at least 3 1/2 - 4 inches to accommodate your lawns needs. Don’t forget to apply the proper watering schedule.

With the hot days approaching insect activity will start to run rampant.  Insects feast on your landscape causing plant damage.  We can help control these destructive insects by applying an insect and disease treatment.  This application will control many damaging insects like Japanese Beetles, aphids, lace bugs, etc...  In addition, this application will protect your landscape from many diseases that spread over the summer.

Only thing more annoying than summer humidity is mosquitoes.  QCLL offers a 4-month program that helps control mosquitoes on your property.  We apply a mosquito repellent fog that controls mosquitoes up to 28 days.  Affordable applications run monthly from May through August.  For more information, please call our office at 704-947-3307
