Hello,

I have tall fescue grass, and it appears some sort of other grass or disease is spreading all around. It doesn't look that bad, but there's definitely something going on and I'm not sure what it is. Any help would be appreciated.

Often, the damage is due to "brown patch," a disease caused by the fungus Rhizoctonia solani. In summer, when nighttime temperatures are above 65 degrees F. and too much wet weather, fescue grass, most especially tall fescue, can develop yellow or brown patches of dead grass. Cut the water sprinklers off when it rains and don't water at night. Water in the mornings so the grass can dry out before night time. Only use a inch water a week.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
