Of course following proper practices-excessive water, N at wrong time & etc. But if it tends to rear its head despite this what is your approach? I have many lawns with a lot of trees and at times of the year the grass will stay wet with dew or irrigation well into the day, 10 hrs+
If you wait you will have an ugly circle of half dead grass. This is what lesco recommended today. The tipping point for us is 60F nights and unfortunately we have to water at night so that is bad.
