    I mowed for my customer and they blamed me for causing the grass dying. I took a look at it and since a week and half, it spread everywhere. The whole leaf are dead. I must be thinking it is grubs but it can not be because it must start in small area and then spreadly slow. I think they put too much nitrogen or it may be some kind of diease that i will have to look it up.

    customer have not kick me out but to ask me why these are dying. I asked them who do the fertilize and they said his son inlaw do it but have been done it every year. I told them I will find out exact what the problem is.....

    one more thing, the lawn is locate in Western North Carolina...They use turf-type tall fescue.

    If overseed too much, will it causes to burn it? That might be one reason.

    Looks like a fungus from here. Look at some of the leaf blades near the dead spots. Or take some samples into your local fert dealer. Lesco has been good to me about helping to id probs.
