Q

Is there another alternative to getting rid of ferry ring in a lawn than by removing the soil?

Answer(s)

A

Some control methods that you may want to try for fairy ring are heavily aerating the affected area to reduce compaction; after aerating, water deeply to keep the lawn from drying out; keep your lawn's thatch layer under 1/2 inch; and you can help mask its appearance until it grows out by applying around the area and throughout the lawn.  Below I have included a link with information about fairy ring.
