My fescue grass gets fungus every year. I've put down fungicide but in about two weeks you can see the fungus spreading again. I've also cut back on my watering schedule, but nothing seems to help.

Soil pH, drainage and excessive nitrogen can all contribute to ongoing fungal diseases. You might want to try Scott's Lawn Fungus Control, which you can find at The Home Depot. The label recommends using double the standard application amount for the first application, with subsequent applications at normal amounts to prevent fungal diseases. Be sure to apply according to label directions, following the amount and frequency recommended.
