    was any fertilizer applied lately? if so, my guess would be missed areas of lawn when the fert was applied. :dancing:

    A picture is worth a thousand words, but most of the time, it is ad calibration of the spreader or just bad throw all together. I love seeing some of these lawns where people use these toy spreaders bought at the big box stores. Of course, I've seen lawns done by some larger companies with some nice healthy stripes or shades, too.

    Just out of curiosity do the homeowners of this property have pets? Maybe ones that are tied or chained to one area can have a dramatic effect with both ammonia and nitrogen levels......areas that may have a higher concentration?
