Help with Black Fungus or Mold in Bermuda

2106 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  richardn
First post here! I love working in my bermuda lawn, but I do have one trouble spot that I would like to bring back to life. It is in a shady, damp location so it will always be a battle, but I do not want to give up. A black fungus or mold has taken over one part of my yard. When it dries out, the top layer scales up a bit.

I recently applied Caravan G (azoxystrobin), but a very heavy rain following the application could have washed it away. I am including a link to a video so that you have a visual of the problem. I would appreciate all the help I can get in order to get the bermuda to spread back into this part of the lawn.

Yes, agree with you there. But can anyone tell me what this black stuff is and how to kill it?
I just wanted to come back and say thanks for all of your helpful comments. I now believe that the black stuff is algae and i'm considering my options. However, perhaps I do not tackle it until I understand what I want to do in those areas to maintain a long-term solution. Thank you for the suggestions on a bermuda type that can thrive in the shade as that is my desired outcome.
