How many times should one put down the fungicide? I did it about a month ago and it doesn't look like it's improved.


I do it once a month, you can probably do it less for maintenance but in your case I'd probably do it again now and in another month. It won't hurt anything if you use more than you actually need. It will be slow to recover, the grass is dead and with the cooler weather it will not grow back quickly; maybe not until the spring. The main thing is the fungus is not spreading. I lost over half of my lawn to it a couple of years ago and it took from the spring to the fall to recover.

What type of grass is that? Looks like centipede.

Just based on the recent pics I think you just need to fertilize more. Go easy on the nitrogen, use a 1-3-3 ratio product. You can go with more nitrogen in the spring time. That could be some disease but without proper nutrition the grass won't recover quickly.

It's St. Aug. Thx...I'll check into the fertilize vs. fungicide breakdown

That's the Sod Web Worm. It is hitting grass hard right now. Brown spot is still a few weeks away, so you can look forward to that next.

I've started noticing brown spots on mine now...and those little moths are plentiful when I walk through the yard.

Liquid Sevin will kill them and it is easy to get and safe. Bifen (bifenthrin) a stronger pesticide will do the trick as well.
