I have new fescue sod and am starting to get brown spots in the lawn. Live in Atlanta. I noticed that most of the fescue lawn in my subdivision are getting these same spots. How do I treat the lawn to get rid on the spots?

Fescue is referred to as a cool-season grass. As the name implies, cool-season grasses prefer cool temperatures but will decline in summer's heat. You can help it remain green for as long as possible by watering every 3-4 days and being careful with mowing. If you allow it to grow too tall between mowings you can scalp the grass and it will burn out. Good luck with your turf!
