    Do they look like this? This is what happens when a homeowner applies Roundup to a nice lawn.

    Do they have dogs?

    A dogs urine is high in nitrogen and will leave burn spots on the lawn.

    Hard to tell if its dogs or the homeowner played lawn guy and sprayed roundup on his weeds.

    I kinda doubt it's brown patch you usally dont see this until summer time. It's a little early yet. Kinda agree with the others. Since you said tall fescue dark green and it's not a Blue grass lawn maybe excessive nitogen might be a problem maybe spilled a little. Then again this is merely a guess.

    looks like dog urine, especially since the spots are fairly close together, dogs will tend to "go" near where they have gone before.......
