Necrotic Spot Ring repair...? Spot overseed and compost topdress....?

Anyone have success with this approach....?

Mowing height has been raised to proper height 4.0" and watering cycles backed off 3 times per week instead of daily all night watering. That was last year remediation.

Now for phase two. Perennial rye dominant mix spot seeding and compost top dressing.

There is some weed pressure in the spots and that will have to be spot sprayed. I'm toying with the idea of spot round up and skip the 24D based product to avoid reseeding conflict.

Your input....?

2,4d spot spraying in June when broadleaf weeds are actively growing,,, while seeding grasses occurs immediately following snow melt... I see no conflict... RU unnecessarily kills grass that allows weeds to come in early May...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...

I always used to repair the spot with sod. Its quick; cut it out square, remove the old sod and insert the new, cut to fit. Soak it with water. Try to get paid the same day--so you have less worry about them watering it. Once you have their money...they will be more careful about watering it themselves.
