Brown spots and hard soil
Water duration: Everyday for an hour in each spot.
Soil: sandy; Nevada desert
Grass type: Scotts Turf Builder Tall Fescue
So we just put this lawn in a few months ago from seeds. About a month ago we noticed these brown spots showing up and are slowly getting bigger.
We thought it may have been from a lawn mower gas spill. However it seems that the soil in these spots is very hard, almost rock hard in some spots.
Anyone have suggestions on how we can resolve this.
Also are we watering too much? The soil here dries out so fast... so we basically have to water daily for an hour in each spot. With temps in the 100s.
