Depending on how big it is, it may be from a fertilizer spreader where someone left the shutoff open when stopped, then re-started in that spot slinging a bunch in one place. It may also be something in the ground that absorbs heat more quickly than surrounding areas causing it to green up sooner.

The next time someone complains about your pricing, ask them how much their barber would charge to come over and cut their hair.

Fairy ring. Whoever named that had some serious problems.

* "Cultural control
Try to maintain a sufficient growth rate of the grass. Mow frequently to minimize the differences in grass vigor between the ring and the rest of the lawn. At times, large areas may be killed by fairy rings. When the grass is killed, it may be possible to remove the sod and the top 6 inches of soil and then reseed or resod. However, this practice does not always work. Sometimes nothing, not even weeds, will grow in areas killed by fairy rings.


Chemical control
Attempts to control fairy rings with fungicide drenches or soil fumigation have met with little or no success." *

I'd add compost to the area, and have that thatch digestted by beneficial organisms... it makes sense that it might work... worth a try when there are no other real solutions...

Ok I'll dig it up and add some compost to the area and reseed it. Hopefully it works bc I'm sick of looking at it in my yard. Thanks for the advice

I have seen the same thing in yards a round here. One day I stopped in to shoot the **** with head greens man at the Golf Course. He said that its a fungus, he takes a pitch fork and pokes holes in it. Then he mixes a little laundry soap with water and applies it to the area. I have never tryed it, kinda sounded sketchy to me.
