Large patch in emerald zoysia

Hey guys,
Do any of you know what I can do to wipe out a case of large patch in my personal back lawn? The lawn is seriously around 8x14 ft of perfect emerald and I noticed the other day that its looking a little rough for spring greenup. I sodded it last summer and it looked like a putting green all last year. Any help and ill be thankful

Large patch, or previously called brown patch, is a fungus that attachs warm and cool season grasses

Bag of Heritage G Fungicide. Probably cost you about $60 for 30lb bag. Rate is like 2lb/1000. Way more than you need for such a small area. Or you could go to Homestore and get something labeled for Large/Brown Patch.( Rizoctonia) Bayer usually has something on the shelf. Will involve mixing in a hand sprayer for the homestore method.

Yes. How fast will depend on the severity of the outbreak. Zoysia is slow to recover from damage. Time heals all wounds. Your lawn will be susceptible to the disease when conditions are favorable for an outbreak from now on.
You can't control mother nature but you can do your part to help prevent an outbreak. Correct cultural practices(mowing, watering, etc...) will help.

That's what I've researched. We don't apply chemicals but I have been around enough to kinda know what's going on. It's a shame that right when the spring comes and your looking forward to a green lawn this comes up and ruins everything

Apply it according to the instructions on the label of whatever product you buy. You will either need a clean handsprayer to apply a concentrate you will dilute in the sprayer or the product may come on a hose end sprayer. Either way, follow the label instructions and you should be fine. Do your best to apply evenly.
