I am new to the biz, and just wanted to get some advice on the best way to attack brown spots on the lawn. The lawn we are doing is growing very well, but looks like some chemical were dumped on the lawn, and all the grass was killed (dry and brown) RIP.:angel:

Anyways, I have not yet repaired and lawns, and would like to learn:
SO my questions are
1) best time to do it
2) seed or sod
3) ground prep?
4) any other advice

Thanks for the help guys.

PS- I've been searching and reading up on this also, but wanted to post to get some feedback, and get to know some people.
Thanks!

More than likely what you are experiencing is "Summer Patch"

Aerate to deal with compaction, raise cutting hieght if cutting to low. If your licensed to apply can apply a fungicide. Spray would be quicker control

Thanks for the replies, but I am almost sure death was caused by chemicals, as there is a lot of work going on with the house.
Is it best to seed, and let it naturally come back, or to sod?

Thanks GLAN,
That mkaes sense, as the chemicals may still be there.
I'll give it a while, and see what happens.
Then I can suggest a solution.

Unless you're liscenced sub it out to a reputable chemical lawn company. Have them run soil samples, etc. If your clients don't want shell out the money for it your only other option is to wait it out and see if it grows back.

dealing w/ a brown spots---

fungus related-- 1st bag clippings to take away infected grass
2nd water during the day so the grass does not stay wet all night, fungus love moisture
3rd aerate and overseed w/ more disease tolerent grass seed
Lastly keep customer inofrmed so your not the blame, I often photocopy pages from reference manuals and leave it w/ the customer



Becareful on fertilizing sometimes it can the disease to spread like wildfire
