The Q&A Archives: Lawn has large brown areas

Question: Our grass is starting to turn green, but we have some very large brown areas that appear to be dead grass. What should we do first?

Answer: The first order of business is to rake out the dead areas. Remove the debris from the areas and then reseed. New grass should pop up in 7-10 days if you keep the area well watered. In a month or so the new grass will blend into your existing grass and you'll barely notice there was a problem.

Best wishes with your lawn!
