    A little over 2 weeks ago, I put in a few new patches of seed where it was just dirt. I did everything required: Tilled the soil, Removed all the Rocks, put down the Scotts Lawnsoil and leveled it off and then spread the seed. I watered it in 2-3 times daily for a little over a week and it came in nice and thick and green. However, about 3 days ago I noticed the grass was getting a little brown so I watered it in. I was out last night and got home late so I didnt check it then, but when I go up this morning and the green was gone. The patches were mostly dead, and there was something in the lawn that almost looked like spider webs and hair. What happened?

    You probably got a fungus Pithium Blight, The spider wed looking stuff is called Mycilia. It is a result of water standing to long on the grass. Don't water at night.
    You are probably going to have to start from scratch.
    It happen to my lawn last spring.
