Frightened about fungus
Fungus damage usually occurs from May through September. Fungus is spread by wind, air, water, animals, people, insects and lawn mowers. Some of the most damaging lawn fungi are spread by Mycelia which travel from leaf to leaf and leave "spider web" like formations on your grass. Spots on leaves, color, growth, time of year and temperature help determine if you have a fungus. Here are some common lawn fungus types to look out for:
Red Thread - creates bright red thread-like strands near grass tips.
Summer Patch - yellow patches 6-12 inches and form rings around healthy grass.
Dollar Spot - two to three inches of straw colored patches with bleached centers and orange borders.
Brown Patch - patches of discolored, wilting and dead grass.
Leafspot - grass blades have oval, purple spots with some yellowing and thinning turf.
