Fescue lawn is browning everywhere
With this latest heat wave/mini-drought, my TTTF lawn is starting to die back severely. I started a new lawn last September. It was full, lush, green, and absolutely gorgeous. I fertilized it back in March, along with some pre-emergent, and everything was going great. Now, all of a sudden, the lawn is turning a light brown color on about half the lawn. I don't think it's a fungus because I can't see any fungus along the boundaries of the dying grass. It's really odd.
I grew up with a bermudagrass, and it was a piece of cake to maintain. I'm thinking of throwing down some bermudagrass seeds and just maintaining a TTTF and BG mixed lawn. It just seems like it has gotten too hot here in TN (in the past two years) to even maintain a TTTF lawn. Anyone have an idea why this die-off is occurring?
