What on earth is happening??
OK Here is my story. A couple of weeks ago my husband purchased a random bag of seed at the local hardware store - I knew I should have gone with him - to try and cover up a couple of small light brown spots on our lawn. I am not sure what type of grass we have here in Massachusetts. And we basically only mow our lawn every couple of weeks. We do not fertilize or water, and we just want to blend in with all the other neighbors. Anyway, he watered it every day and after about 4 days white grass started to grow. I figured it would eventually turn green but instead it seemed like it was killing all the other grass around it. In the past few days or so these strange weird dark brown paths of dirt have appeared (see photo) with even more white grass around them. We have 4 large stretches like that around our yard. It seems like the recent rain we are having has made it worse, too. Do we have some sort of fungus? And what the heck can we do about it? People are slowly driving by our house and pointing! Thanks in advance.
