I've got a newly sodded yard of Tall Fescue that's about two months old. It had been doing pretty good in the Atlanta GA heat but now it's really taking a beating with diseases after all these extened rain periods. It looks like leaf spot and there's melting out from what I can see. Some areas lay down flat and die, other areas get spotty with these varying shade spots that are like purple fading to gold in the middle of the blades of grass and a lot of it eventually dies. This is pretty serious. I don't recall any areas that were hit recoving too well. So far I've used three treatments of Scotts fungus control in two week intervals. It doesn't help much. I've followed the directions on the bag to a T and no real results. From what I've read, I know there's not much I can do to stop it now besides not overwatering and cutting at the right height and all that. But what could be causing this to break out like this? Is there something that needs to be done to my soil this fall that can prevent this? I did a soil test and everything before I laid this sod and it looked fine - pH was right btwn 6&7. I'm already thinking about renting a Bob Cat, tearing this up, and laying a zoysia turf. I HATE Fescue!
