    In April I did some re seeding in a customers lawn. I got a call that while she was awy last week the grass in between her flagstones completely died while the other areas are fine. I looked at it and it looks like wet straw.
    Any ideas of what this may be?

    Thanks!!

    Forgive me, what's a flagstone?

    If it's been as hot there as here lately and if the flagstone has a bed or base underneath it then the combination of heat absorption by the stone and the
    base underneath the stone acting as drainage and not giving the seed a real place for root growth would possibly do it.
