According to John: Great Solution for Lawn Brown/Dry Spots

Before 1 After 1


Lawns are terribly depressing and unattractive if they are beset with  brown or dry spots. The first step is to figure out what caused the problem. Most likely, the problem is inadequate water. If not, the problem is disease, usually a fungal problem. The symptoms and solutions are different for each problem. If your turf is  brown/ gray and dry, you should immediately provide water to the affected areas. If the turf is diseased, it should immediately be dried out (to allow the pathogens to die back) and infused with beneficial soil microbes, food for microbes and attractants for microbes. Beneficial microbes will out-compete and clear off harmful fungi and other pathogens, while breaking down nutrients to feed the turf.

After this first step of diagnosis and treatment, the next step is one of the least known and best solutions. This product for ugly and/or sick lawn works fantastic but is unheralded. It works great on both dry or sick lawns. Some impressive test results came out of U.C. Davis and I’ve been using it for some time now with spectacular results.  The really unique part of this is it promotes growth, reduces the turf’s need for water and provides a realistic green color that hides and eliminates the discolored spots. It’s called Green Now, by Turf Medix. While we wait for lawn to recover naturally, we apply the Green Now and it looks great.  See this amazing product in action in the pictures above and below. We will begin selling this product on our website in the next couple of weeks. It’s not widely available, but it is the best product I have ever used for this purpose.

Fixing a brown, spotted lawn can be a multi-stage process. We recommend curing the problem at the source. However, because it can take some time for microbes to resolve the issue, Green Now is here to help get your lawn looking great immediately!
