Yeah, a snake had spontaneous combustion.:rolleyes:
More like an herbicide leak (sprayer) or gas run-off from an overfilled mower.

oh no dont tell me that,this mark is 17 feet long, i recently apply snake away because we found some small corn snakes which are not dangerous but if this is an snake and having pets and a small baby is scaring the hell out of me.

nope, unless someone was trying to do me a favor but I have not applied any pesticide or herbicide in my lawn or rocks.

TTPRODR,
I believe you have nailed the coffin shut on the snake theory.
My employees have been guilty of such a difficult problem to solve. Yet, it shows up within a few days for me to find and it always eludes their memories as to what happened. I tear up a sample of grass, smell it and tell them the answer........it is always the same. We use Stihl commercial line- trimmers, with those new hairbrained special caps that are hard a heck to get to lock on..
The only other option would be vole damage that often will raise the turf just high enough for the roots to dry out and turn the tunneled grass's brown.
