For issues with South Texas Lawns I always recommend submitting a sample to the Texas Plant Disease Diagnostic Lab (https://plantclinic.tamu.edu/). Analysis often reveals multiple issues, including lesser known fungal pathogens and pests. A proper diagnosis is very important to treat it effectively.
