    this week, i noticed some odd grayish patches of grass. not too big, about 1 foot in diameter max. not all accounts have it but plenty of them do.

    do you know what this is?
    is it harmful?
    how do you get rid of it?

    sorry, no pic's.

    Sounds like the start of grubs or some sort of insects, they usually leave behind foot diameter dead patches

    I'm looking at a Lesco Disease Chart, could be Summer Patch or Pythium Blight. Just guessing without any photos and even then it's a guess. Go on line to a college hort. extension site and you may get an answer.
