If you think you have dollar spot, WE CAN HELP! Contact us today for an estimate!
Dollar spot is a fungal disease that damages the leaves but not the roots of grass. It causes large amounts of readily apparent straw-colored spots roughly the size of a silver dollar. Looking at infected blades of grass up close you can see yellow spots shaped like an hourglass. Treatment is much the same as with necrotic ring spot/summer patch. Proper watering will suppress the fungus, and fertilizer will grow the spots out of the lawn. You should also avoid mowing the grass at heights under 2.5 inches.
