Calling all PRO's or anyone who knows anything about brown spots in a lawn.

Ok guys here the deal. I could really use some help here. I am new to the whole good looking lawn thingy.

Here is what I did.

Airateed (SP)

Put down weed and feed

Put down new seeds


It has been about 2/3 weeks now and all of a sudden this has been poping up in my yard all of a sudden.

Here is the other thing about this. I cut a few of my neighbors yards as well, to help them out. I do not charge them anything. I am just neighborly like that. Well I looked at ALL of their yards and they are having these same spots.

This is what I have for cutting. I am using a Cub ZRT with NEW Gator blades on it. I have looked all over the mower for anything that seems to be leaking from it and I find nothing.

Can anyone please help. I really want a nice looking yard and not wanting to mess up any ones yard. This is really starting to bug me.

I have attached some images for viewing.

Thanks in advance....

You see those spot's in all the yard's you cut ? You do have a leak, that look's like a gasoline burn. Have you tried smelling that spot ? Is your gas cap on completely ? You would be surprised how often that is the case.

Yes I do suppose that could be it as the gas would dry up and evaporate before I could see it.

Should be easy to see IMHO if a gas leak. Did you stop in this area?

No I did not stop in these ares of where they are sowing this crap is happening. They are in the middle of my stripes. you could be right though as I had the kid on it today and it appeared there was gas leaking out of the cap when he was hitting bumps I tightened it down and no more spill. We will see how that goes...
