    Any guesses on what the reddish-brown patch in the middle is?

    :waving: (ignore the dormant patches of Kentucky bluegrass that surrounds it)

    This pic was not taken close up, so it is difficult to diagnose. This is a turfgrass that shells out during summer weather, but recovers in late fall. It has shallow roots and is fine textured (looks like fine fescue). It is a bluegrass culivar that mistakenly comes with bad grass seed. Hope this helps, and next time I'll try to better taking proper pictures.
