The Q&A Archives: grass

Question: I fertilized my lawn with a fertilizer and crabgrass preventer on march 25 3 weeks later i put lime down.Grass started to turn yellow and light green then brown spots.Toke a soil test and my ph is 6.8.Trying to find the reason for my problem

Answer: I would closely inspect the grass blades and compare the browning turf with the light green grasses. You may find that you have a mixture of cool season and warm season grasses. The cool season grasses go dormant when the weather warms and the warm season grasses will green up. In late summer the warm season grasses will go dormant and the cool season grasses will green up. Feeding and liming should green up those warm season grasses within another couple of weeks. Enjoy!
