I have a very healthy beautiful grass lawn. However, there are areas with black dusty spots. What is it and how do I get rid of it?

The black areas are probably sooty mold, a fungus that grows on turf from occasionally. Sooty mold does not attack the turf but actually growing on the surface. It only harms the turf by blocking out light to the grass blades.

Simply take a water hose and blast it off whenever it appears. Or you can ignore it as it will go away on its own in time.
