Rings of dark green grass, often bordered with small tan mushrooms, are clear signs of this condition. Areas of dead growth may appear inside the rings. Fairy rings thrive in mild, moist weather. Because the fungi grow on organic matter in the soil, they don’t harm the grass directly, but they may restrict water flow. To correct the problem, soak the rings with water every day for a month, remove thatch and aerate the lawn, and fertilize. By greening up the rest of the grass, you’ll obscure the rings.
