Hi Angelle,

Algae in grass occurs where the ground is compacted and poorly drained, resulting in a damp surface – conditions that this type of algae thrive in.

To avoid this, take steps to improve drainage in the area, such as spiking/ aerating and topdressing with sand, or in very waterlogged areas perhaps think of installing a drainage system.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Katy

We live in an area with almost coarse sand. Drainage is very good. These algea just seem to dry up for weeks and when it starts to rain the soak up and get slippery and bubbly. I am just wondering what type of algea this can be.
