Bad Spots in your Yard?

Necrotic Ring Spot is the most damaging fungus disease associated with Kentucky Bluegrass.  I have attached a fact sheet from Colorado State University that provides the needed information for our community. 

This is a disease that we have had success in control with the use of fungicides applied in the spring of the growing season.  We have also provided overseeding in areas severely damaged to help mask some of the damage. 

This is a problem that is not easily eliminated, and one that the HOA will have to deal with over the course of several years.  The recommended cultural practices are ones that our current Landscape Crew (All Phase Landscape) incorporates into all of its management services.
