    I have a strange patch of white in my yard that is super hard. I had to pry part of it up with the edge of a rake today. Below the hard white crust is kinda wet and sandy with THICK roots. Someone please help me identify and cure this.

    I thought i would ask that, because it sounds and looks familiar. dig it out put dirt, or compost and reseed it will be fine.

    Yep, it does kinda resemble the look of a paint pan being washed out.

    I'm suprised it's lasted a couple years there though.
