I was called out to look at a property on Lake Austin to help a potential new client figure out how to fix landscape issues his current service was unable to diagnose. The lawn had the worst case of lawn fungus that I have ever seen. The entire lawns elevation was just a few feet above the level of lake Austin and it caused the water table under the lawn to also be just a few feet under the surface. As a result the soil under the lawn was wicking up the water from the shallow water table and caused the lawn to stay wet and soggy all winter long. The excess moisture allowed lawn fungus to seriously ravage the lawn. Nothing short of ripping out the entire lawn and installing a layer of aggregate to stop the wicking problem was going to solve this problem.
