Here's a timeline of my yard August of last year - new house, new yard, soil in the front is mainly clay, soil in the back is nice, no trees in front yard, back yard has several tall pines- tilled yard incorporating starter fertilizer, laid 950 sq yards of centipede sod. The sod took off great, real thick and green and growing nicely, no weeds October - spread Scott's winterizer March - since no real signs of weeds, spread Scott's southern lawns formula at end of March April - tons of weeds in the back yard, but I can deal with them. The front yard is where the main problem is. I think I have brown patch which is coming and going. I first noticed it about the second week of April. I bought some fungus spray but did not apply it. I took the advice of someone who told me I probably wasn't watering enough and also said I put down the wrong fertilizer. I upped my watering schedule and it seemed to help. On his advice I also spread some iron. We got 3+ inches of rain this past Saturday so I hadn't watered until tonight. In the meantime, the grass has made another turn for the worse. Basically, in the affected areas, the leaves fold in half. There are also some leaves with dark tips and some completely maroon in color. None of the spots seem to be completely "dead", but the areas are real thin and look very bad. May - Applied the fungus control at the beginning of this week but I guess it is still too early to tell if it is working. Can I please get some help diagnosing what my problem is and tell me what I'm doing wrong and what I can do to get back the lawn I had late last summer?
