    Can Anyone tell me what is going on in this lawn. These pics are of the same yard that I have been taking care of for the last 3 years and now this. Last app was 15-3-7 fert only. I have not done any weed control apps due to the heat. Any help welcome.... The shrub is on the same corner as the area of the lawn that is giving me problems. I am thinking insect problem, Grubs, Or Fungus.??????

    Was any snow piled there in the winter? With salt mixed in with it from the driveway or sidewalk?

    The shrub looks like it has shear damage to me. As far as the lawn it looks normal to me this time of the year. Seeding time coming up shortly so it'll straighten out after you overseed it.

    Is that a Korean boxwood or Japanese Holly? Slit one of the leaves open and see if it has leaf miners in it.

    Shrub looks like Jap. Pittosporium or Burford Holly, check for scale. Lawn looks like disease activity, or poss. grubs. I don't think (from photos) that these two problems are related.
