brown lawn

mridudeJuly 20, 2013

I have bermuda. It is a 10 year old lawn. I have never had any problem with the lawn. This year, about 3 or 4 weeks ago it started turning brown. Not in patches-the entire front lawn. It was during very hot weather. I am watering less than last year, but still every other day. I thought maybe because I cut back on water, but then we got that 4 days straight of rain and the lawn did not green up a bit! I cut my lawn weekly, but not quite as short as most people do. I have changed NOTHING. No fertilizer since May. Help!

You should be watering only once per week. Bermuda rarely gets a fungal disease but yours might have one.

Also you should be fertilizing every month. Bermuda needs it to stay healthy and dense.

How do I tell if my lawn has a fungus and what is the treatment?

Take a picture and post it here. Get the camera 3 inches from the grass on a cloudy day.
