Lawn problem in Sioux Falls SD

Asked September 22, 2015, 12:36 PM EDT

My grass is yellowing. Have given it a heavy winterize fertilizer treatment and 2.5" of water in the past 1 1/2 week. No improvement. Grass seems very fine so assuming is mainly Blue Grass. Areas that I have seeded in past few years seem not as effected. Assuming they are a wider variety of grass types.

How much fertilizer did you put on and what was the formulation? A 10-10-10 works well for lawns. We recommend about 1 pound per 1,000 sq. ft. Was it yellowing before the fertilizer application? Can you send me some pictures?

I will be out of the office starting at noon today and will be checking my email as time permits. Please feel free to send me an email at: jackie.buckley@ndsu.edu
