can anyone tell me what this might be ? Fungus ?
just started like 2-3 weeks ago
Need more pics. Close up ones also.
My vote goes to dollarspot.
Looks about like my lawn looked during a warm rainy spell this last summer.
It should recover with cooler dryer weather. Mine looks a lot better in the last two weeks.
Good reason to go with top-quality seed. If the seed or sod you buy doesn't say resistant to dollarspot--it must be susceptible. I think I overseeded with a seed mix with some low-quality, old-fashioned fine fescue--20 years ago.
Doesn’t dollar spot kinda brown like that with a weeds coming out of the center ?
I never saw weeds coming out of the center. Dollarspot looks a bit white at first, then turns brown.
It is typical to see many green grass blades with the upper two inches turned white, (and later brown).
On the other hand, necrotic ring spot (summer patch) after a few weeks, often appears in the form of a ring --sometimes with weeds or green grass in the center.
what do you recommend to use on it ?
No much commercial experience. In my own lawn, I did not have much success with daconil garden fungicide. No longer labeled for lawns, in any case. The brown spots are gradually recovering. Cool weather now, but still rainy.
The DMI fungicides are usually recommended.
Do they own dogs?
