    alot of my accounts are fescue grass and i live in georgia. the problem is every summer the fescue gets this fugus or something that is brown patches all over. I have seen it a million times and forgot the name of it and how to treat/prevent it. any help would be great!! ps. it happens to lawns with irrigation and none irrigation.

    Are you thinking of "brown patch"? That's the name.

    Go to Lesco - use Bayleton - it is mucho expensive but works systemically - bye - bye brown patch! On irrigated lawns, water at sunrise - brown patch fungus loves dark, wet, hot and humid conditions - in other words it loves the South when there is no sunshine!

    Most often grass turning brown comes from dehydration.
