Answer #1 · Maple Tree's Answer · Hi Alexander-Dollar Spot is a fungal disease that will normally show up late spring and early summer. It does start out as small dollar size spots that can get a lot larger as the spots join together. Lawns with a heavy thatch or ones that recieve a lot of water for short periods of time keeping the surface wet are more susceptible to the disease. The fungus thrives when the surface of the lawn stays wet and the soil is dry. Too much rain or possibly watering too often and too little can cause the Dollar Spot. Many times just changing your watering schedule to more days in between watering and water for a longer period of time will help. Doing this keeps the surface dryer and makes sure the soil is deeply moistened. I noted below a link to an article on types of lawn diseases and methods for controlling them. Just click on the link to go directly to the article.

Hopefully this will help to solve the problem. Please ask if you have any other questions.
