    I do not know much about lawn problems. What could a dark gray or close to black in color spots maybe one foot in size be all over a lawn? If you know what it is how do you treat it?

    hard to say without seeing. Maybe heat stress if the lawns are real dry or could be a fungus, no way to know for sure without seeing.

    Sounds like Pythium Blight (Greasespot). Treatment is tough, let the area dry out, avoid heavy fertilization application of a fungicide might help. Good luck.

    The grass is a mix of Bermuda, Fescue, trying to make it all Bermuda. I think it has somthing to do with being watered daily.

    It could be Stripe Smut ( usually April-Nov) or Leaf Spot (April-November)

    Can you take a pix of it?
