I've ransacked Aggie Horticulture's web site pretty thoroughly to no avail.
I've tried to contact our turf scientists, but haven't gotten an answer
yet. Will check with the county agent next. If not there-I'll try out oak

However, he is an avid gardener and does a lot of watering and fertilizing
anyway. Thanks. I'll get to the 'root' of the problem yet. :)
