Hello. How can i fix this?  north east

Answer
1. Identify the condition(s) which led up to the situation.
     a) Cultural: like watering, scalping etc.
     b) Insects:  Soap flush on the edge of the dead patch to include some good turf.
     c) Man made: Spillage of solid or liquid, parking or storing something on the area.
     d) Disease:  If none of the above then it is probably a disease (fungus).

  The Extension Service in the County where you live is a tremendous resource.

2. Correct the condition: replace soil, adjust sprinklers, apply products labeled for the problem on residential lawns.

3. Re-sod and follow the recommendations of the supplier. Fungus will be the thing to watch for.

  If it sounds like work, some of it can certainly be; but it is interesting and deeply satisfying.
