    I really would like to have a nice, professional looking lawn. I have a problem with my grass and need help. Could anyone tell me what the problem is and what would you do to fix it?

    Thanks,

    Ray

    Ok, On a more serious note. According to the Horticulture Gardener's Desk Reference you have a Magnesium or Copper deficiencie.

    Was it possibly fed during august rainfall.
    That wood would load it with nitrogen. Then
    the drought and there the grass set with
    a load of nitrogen and no moisture to process
    and use it properly. just a possibility.

    Was fertilized with starter 9 weeks ago and has been properly irrigated.
