    every year i get this same problem at this house, same EXACT spot and shape.
    there is a big tree that drops acorns there but they fall over a big portion of the front yard and only that area has the problem.ive reseeded every year and every year when it gets hot(end of june early july) same thing.
    the only thing i can think of is there may be something underground like a pipe or rock that is close to the surface not allowing for a good root system and when it gets hot c ya.
    any ideas?

  4. I'm guessing tree roots are the main cause.

    Dig it up and see. Everyone likes to dig! :blob4:

    Either something added TO the soil (spilled or dumped on) or something or something IN the soil like roots or foreign material.

    Take a soil sample to the co-operative extension service for soil analysis

    Pythium?
     
  9. Do you turn the mower there? Some times the mower will drop wet grass clumps and will cause spots like this.
