Gray Grass?

Anyone know what this is? Very small patches of it keep appearing in my side yard.

I think your grass blades have a fungus. Local extension desk/service will know its identiry, but usual lawn fungus- typical in heat of the summer, with much rain (assuming you get lots of rain)

No doubt, that is a fungus.

HD/Lowes will have a product. On the road this week, but I think what I have in my garage is a Spectricide-brand spray. It is pricey. (By my recollection, only sold in the single-use pre-loaded sprayer that you hook up to your hose. YMMV)

Usually caused by prolonged dampness on the blades. Is it mainly in shady areas? Do you water in the evening? If you have an irrigation system, what time does it come on?

Stop any watering unless absolutely necessary.
