    Wait, you don't plan to plant seed after you put the crabgrass preventer down do you?

    Exactly. Do not put down pre-emergent for crabgrass if you are planning to seed.

    If you seed, take a blower and go around all those rocks and try to blow and seed back out onto the lawn. Good luck.

    I am not sure it is snowmold. In fact--if you look carefully--you can see that along the sidewalk-- it is probably salt damage. Did it snow a lot last winter? Did you pile big piles of snow plus salt in the center of the yard? A few heavy rains wash the salt away.

    Perennial ryegrass can be damaged by snowmold--but it is quick to take hold in an overseed situation.Get a high-quality, disease-resistant perennial rye.

    I suggest one of the professional Landscape mixes from Lacrosse Seed. "Choice" for instance.

    You need professional help. A small owner-operated lawn company will be able to give you a positive diagnosis. Snowmold, crabgrass, foreign or southern grass type, bentgrass or a type of grass that greens up slowly.

    Grubs? Fungus from last year?
