Lawn dying in streaks

Asked August 2, 2013, 8:01 PM EDT

Our lawn in north houston is rapidly dying in streaks. The lawn mower may be
carrying the dease. One month ago it was healthy. What can I do to stop this?

I have a few questions about your lawn.

  • Was any fertilizer recently applied?
  • Was any herbicide applied in the area?
  • Can you pull the affected turf up in clumps, or is it still rooted in?
  • Do you have an irrigation system? If so, run it and observe if that area is being covered properly.
  • Is this an established lawn, or was the sod laid this spring?
Thanks for the question and I look forward to hearing back from you.
