How to recognize grey leaf spot on your lawn
The first signs of grey leaf spot in your lawn will be small olive green or brown pinhead-sized spots on the blades of glass. Gradually the disease will spread to become highly viable and problematic. When it’s super humid, the fungus will produce spores in the middle of the spots. Eventually, grey leaf spot will give your lawn the appearance of being dry and dead. Many times, during rainy season, the grass will be covered in mold. Although this common lawn disease will not generally kill an entire lawn, it is unsightly and in heavy areas, will give the lawn the appearance of being burned and dry.
