The Yellow-Spotted Lawn Phenomenon

Have you noticed yellow spots on your lawn recently? Nearly every Ohio homeowner has seen their yards affected by the recent spring-freeze. This phenomenon is a natural occurrence that is caused by night-time temperatures reaching the 20s and 30s. This causes the frost to burn the turf blade tissue, resulting in the yellowing you see.

Check out this brief video from Joe Rimelspach of The Ohio State University’s Department of Plant Pathology and the Ohio Turfgrass Foundation for more information.
