Sorry, I forgot to ask about your watering again. How often and how long do you water?

RE: Lawns

Frequent watering is very likely your problem. If you have temps in the 90s every day, then you should be watering once per week. If you have temps in the 80s, then once every other week.

Put some tuna or cat food cans around your yard and time how long it takes to fill the cans. That is your target time for watering no matter what the interval. When you know what that time is, then start to wean your lawn from daily watering to weekly with the target time as the goal. It might take a month to get the grass all the way to infrequent watering.
