Lawn and soil problems
I having problems with my soil under my lawn absorbing water. I do seem to have hard, clay type soil, but i also noticed that the soil seems to repel and not absorb water in some areas of the lawn. I have tall fescue (marathon sod)it usually does well in the cooler seasons of the year, but just a couple of weeks ago as the weather warmed up, the lawn seems to be drying and dying. I'm gettng some patches of daead looking grass and areas where the lawn looks fine. I do see a lot of water run off in some spot when I water.
I have tried aerating and fertilizing regular, but the summer months are a real problem. Then in late summer as the weather starts to cool, the lawn seems to rejuvenate and really thickens and greens up again.
I a bit confused..anyone have any tips or suggestions, i appreciate the help.
Sorry, I'm new here and may be posting what others have in the past. Thanks
