Em, congrats on that lawn - lookin' pretty good!!!

Our lawn caught a disease - 5-6 days ago, just the usual dry spots - then ........ it's called 'brown spot fungus' and evidently much of the neighborhood is affected. I sprayed it with some stuff called Natria which is supposed to control it at least and will probably have to reseed

 Red fescue, rye grass, Kentucky Bluegrass, crab grass, weeds - with the last two, by far the bestevileyeevileyeevileye

Part of our brown grass is from lack of rain too. Just had a little over the weekend, but probably too late to save the grass

That sounds like the grasses that ranchers want in the pastures in Tejas biggrinbiggrinbiggrin

I always liked bermuda grass except it's bad to breed chiggers

congrats on the mater score, Mego
