Hi - This fungal growth in your lawn is a sign of brown patch disease. Brown patch can be drastic, but it does not kill the crown or growing point of the grass plants. In order to manage this disease, it is important to maintain proper soil fertility. Please refer to our webpage about brown patch which explains what you can do to manage it. https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/brown-patch-lawns
