I put down fungicide 3 weeks ago...and the dollar spot is still spreading like a weed in my lawn. Its starting to take over everywere even where I put extra down. Its been very wet here. Haven't turned on the sprinklers for 4-5 weeks now. This is also the first year we never weed/feeded the lawn. Could that of caused it. Someone please help. I don't want to lose the only (was) green thing on my property.

Help!


This former turfgrass manager reminds you feeding the lawn on a regular basis is the absolute best defense against bugs and fungi.

If a fungus has gotten to your lawn, repeated application of an appropriate fungicide will be necessary. But give it a fighting chance and feed it.

Those who follow the Scotts idiot proof program seldom complain. I find it expensive but then I always fed acres and acres of turfgrass.

Do you have a golf course or park district maintenance shed near you? Stop by and have a casual chat with the turf guys there. They will be happy to help you. Catch them early.

Your university or city, county, regional, state level ag extension people will help you as best the can with budget cuts. Some have turf specialists on hand.

By the way, is this infestation localized or are you seeing through the entire neighborhood. The extension people will really want to know if this is something they need to arrest and contain.
