When was this picture taken? Its looks like snow mold, I would power rake this and apply a deep application of fertilizer. This will green it up and give it a more consistant color thoughout the lawn.

The picture was taken today 5-8-2010. I just put down 20-27-3 fertilizer to encourage the roots to grow. hopefully it works. any other advice is appreciated.

Thanks

Root growth is promoted by potassium. This has a high phosphate level which is of some benefit and major benefit to basically flowers. Have you done a soil test? If so what were their recommendations as to fertilize?

Is this ryegrass? If so, it looks almost like red thread fungus.

Or is it Kentucky bluegrass? Bermuda? Tall fescue? Centipede?
Uneven green--fert should fix that unless it is due to different grass types.
Are those rocks limestone? Maybe it needs lime. Do a soil test.
Is the green in foreground and around the drainage ditch caused because it needed more water? Or is that green streak a fertilizer burn?
I would suggest a fert high in slow release--like a 25-0-5 with 50 percent of nitrogen in the slow release form. Tall fescue does not like fert in hot weather--be aware.
