I have a bad case of fungus in my front lawn. It is mostly bermuda grass with a little bit of fescue in the shade part of the lawn. What would be the best way to treat the fungus. Also, someone told me that use a solution of colorox and water would control the fungus. Is there any validity to that statement. Thanks for your help. I appreciate it very much.

Bleach will kill your lawn so don't use it - at any dilution rate. For fungus in grasses, Corn gluten meal is the best control. Apply about 15 pounds corn gluten meal per 1000 sq.ft of lawn, and water it in. Or, you can disolve 4 teaspoons baking soda per gallon of water, and spray it lightly. The corn gluten meal will work a little better and it also adds many nutrients to the soil, as well as being a deterrant to weed seeds to germinate.
