Really pleasant weather down here in Buda TX! I was really enjoying it as I worked on the flowerbeds, hauling mulch all over the place, plenty of sunshine, few puffy cumulus with 96 degrees and 77 degree dewpoints! That heat index was something else! 110 degrees!

We get decent summers down here, and it is only getting started!

As expected, it all pretty much died as it moved eastward.

0.00"

Not looking very promising for here today either. Sprinkler time!

I understand the frustration for those that needed rain and didn’t get any from a day that looked so promising. I got 1.12” and over 3” in the past week. The garden and grass look great, but now I’ll worry about lawn fungus. It’s always something...

Plenty green here, for now. If it doesn't rain every few days this time of year I have to water to nurse the grass along though. Super well drained soil plus competition from large trees all around makes it a difficult task with high sun and long, hot days..

Nothing here yesterday but some distance thunder a couple wind gust from outflow and light shower. After 4" on Saturday I'm good with drying out for a few days.

Actually maybe I am wrong. Just looked it up and fungus can occur do to dryness. Shows my ignorance. Looking at the photos, it looks like what I am seeing now. Patchy brown spots where it appears the grass is going to thatch. It occurs in places where the sun is beating down on it all day. Maybe I should put up a few small canopies lol.

There are some spray concentrations that are really good. They take a week or so to show improvement but work great.

So apparently the fungi/spores are always there but they do the damage when grass become stressed for whatever reason. I just always assumed it was burning due to the sun/soil dryness. Maybe worth spaying the whole area using a garden sprayer? Not a big area at all where I am trying to maintain some decent grass.

Definitely worth it. Just a guess, but in about ten days you’ll be glad that you did.

Hey CAPE , if you can share your thoughts on a good product I really appreciate it .  Thinking about applying something like to my front lawn.  

FYI ., my front lawn has really turned brown, missed all the rain you have received. Lower half has gone dormant.  Going to be a tough summer rain wise I think.

Ortho used to have a liquid named 2787, might be off on the numbers though lol. Just look for the active ingredient but I know you know that

It is a fungus that has the spiderweb look on the grass with help from the dew. Powdery mildew. 2787 however used to be good for about two weeks.

Talk to a landscape company. Let a professional advise you. Products from big box stores like Lowes aren’t likely to be of much help.
