    They may have put down too much. Just a thought. What type of grass is it?

    How dry has it been down there? These are things to consider before just throwing down more. There may be more going on there. Also, if it is a new lawn, it's possible that it could just be rust. This is common within the first year of new lawns.

    LOL, I realize they've had al the flooding down there and such, but I just wasn't sure what his area has had just recently. We've had the same thing up here, but the last week and a half has yielded dry weather with much hotter temps. Thank goodness, we just got some more rain, today.

    your saying they installed the lawn, the seed popped, then they hit it with urea at probably .5 - 1lb of nitrogen per 1000 sq. ft. which would only last 2-4 weeks depending on how much they put down. now the lawn is starting to melt because of lack of nutrients. sounds like you answerd your own question. fertilize it.
