    tru-green has sprayed two lawn in different
    parts of town, both have something that
    looks like spot disease. top part of the grass
    is brown and spots in the middle of the blade
    are brown but not dark brown (light).
    I mow three yards in a row, only one sprayed
    by this company. The other two are fine even
    on the property lines. On the other side of town
    the same thing two yards side by side one with
    the same problem. both sprayed on the same day.
    Any thoughts of what is happening, before I
    call this company and tell them whats going on.
    I know what they will say to the customer- that
    my blades are dull.....NOT!!! Its like they have
    sprayed something on the grass to kill it
    but only killing spots on the blades of grass and
    the tops.

    It may not be either you or tru greens fault. You need to take a sample up to your local extension office, I will include a link below that lists the ones in Ohio. Contact them and they will give you the procedure to follow to take a good sample for analysis. This is really the only way to determine what the problem is.
    Good Luck,
