Answer: How frustrating for you! Grass won't grow in shady spots so if the spot in question gets shade, that may account for the problem. If it is a sunny spot, perhaps there is some underlying problem with the soil. I would dig up the area and add some organic matter (compost, aged manure, or whatever is locally available) and then rake the area smooth and overseed with fresh grass seed. If the soil is compacted it will keep roots from penetrating deeply so adding organic matter should cure the problem. Hope so!
