This apparently dead patch popped up in our fescue yard in January. It was a mystery to our yard service provider. In early March, we roughed up the dirt and applied seed we have used before that has worked well to seed bare spots. Today, there are no visible signs of germination. What should we do now? Is there a disease in the soil? Help!


  • Walter Reeves The Georgia Gardener says:

    It looks more like chemical/pesticide damage to me. The fact that your seed didn’t germinate is troubling. Do another germination test. If nothing sprouts, consider removing the top 4″ of soil and replacing it with a 1:1 mixture of bagged raised bed soil and your native soil. Do another germination test and it should be okay to plant fescue.
