    i'd back off the watering and aerify in the fall. Remember, deep and infrequent with your watering schedule. it will promote deeper roots and hold up to stress better. hope this helps

    You definitely have some leaf spot going on there. I would have to see more to tell you exactly what type of disease you have going on. 3 times a week is WAY too often to be watering the way our humidity has been. It's just a micro-environment just right to incubate this type of stuff. If you're conditions have been anything like ours, that is the contributer. Itis fungus though...no question about it

    Just from what I've heard before, looks like it could be grubs if it pulled up that easily? Try digging into the soil a bit and see what you come up with

    Thanks for the replies. I will check the soil to see if there's grubs. If it's a fungus can something be purchased or should it be replaced. On the same strip that I mow seems to have the same problem like as if it's spreading by the clippings.
