Hello all!

My lawn started out beautiful this yer but has now developed these brown spots throughout! I suspect that it may be a fungus because f the fairly well spring that we have had. Can anyone suggest how to eliminate this?

Thanks in advance!

Are your neighbor's lawns experiencing the same?

As crazy as this sounds, a dull blade on a mower can cause it....as well as a fungus called 'brown patch'. You can buy a lawn fungicide at local hardware stores.

There are many different reasons for brown patch grubs, dog urine, scalping the lawn, erosion, insects, dull blade, fungus so it's hard to diagnosis your specific problem. Do you have an extension agent that can help you because the remedy is different for each specific problem.
