NOTE: I’m in Phoenix, AZ and our high temps are about 99 degrees right now (that’s not the normal high temp, just lately).
Hi guys, I had new BOBsod installed 10 days ago and it was recommended to spray a fungicide on about day 7. I blew that off a bit but I think I’ve been over watering lately and now believe I might have some fungus growing. Oh, if I’ve been over watering it’s because I think for the first few days I was under watering and nearly all 2,300 square feet of sod got pretty brown.
We had a lot of lawn gnats the other day and I have some brown spots so I was going to spray some fungicide. I picked up a bottle of Bioadvanced Fungus Control for Lawns, active ingredient is Propiconazole.
However, today I also just received my Rachio Thrive bottles. I was mostly just wondering if I can spray the fungicide on the whole lawn then maybe in 3 or 4 days apply the Thrive. My worry was that the fungicide would negatively impact or conflict with the Thrive stuff.
Additionally, I should just skip the fungicide and apply the Thrive tomorrow? The lawn has greened up greatly now with maybe about 20 2 square foot sections of what looks like dead brown grass. It’s mostly at the end or beginning of any given roll which makes me also suspect it’s that the sod wasn’t as fresh as they claimed. I bought it off a respected local sod farm (West Coast Turf) and had their own guys install it. It was delivered at 10 pm the night before and they started installing it at noon the next day. It’s possible that there’s no fungus but the other evening there were just so many gnats flying around over the lawn.
