Looks like a fescue lawn? Not sure?
I would guess necrotic ring spot, when were the pics taken?
Bummer JDL is dumping this site, so pics are not working
ringspot almost forsure.................
blue grass, sep. , friends yard, is there all the time and getting worse,
they mow there own lawn, I do a clean up for them once a season,
Ya thats what I kinda figured, what do you all suggest for treatment, in chemicals or for organic application, it is real severe in other parts of the lawn also, all in the front lawns, could this be spread by mower to back.
What time of year? What watering schedule does it see?
With limited knowledge about the situation...
As soon as signs start to appear aerate and spray with chitin. Three weeks later hit it with a good CT. Another CT a couple/few weeks after that. CT also inoculated with soil from a thriving local lawn (without disease problems) is best.
Also, if it is irrigated make sure they irrigate it early morning... not more than every other day.
Usually disease that bad is caused by unhealthy turf... a soil test would help identify the real culprit = solve the underlying problem.
corn meal @ 10 lbs per K every 5 weeks.... and lots of ct...
the other fungus that attacks it is trichoderma, in the ct???
Its always there, they have to hand water, all the rest of lawns lush green,
Oh, and a good overseeding early/mid fall.
The 'raw' organic fert and CT like tree mentioned should help a ton.
