Answer: I don't know whether the turf can be renovated or if it would be easier to simply remove it and start all over with healthy new sod. You can try putting it on an intensive maintenance program - deep watering, frequent mowing, weed control and feeding at prescribed times - along with raking out the dead areas and reseeding in the fall. If I don't sound too encouraging it's because even if you get your current turf back to a healthy state, the grasses in your turf may not be the best for your area. I'd really be inclined to remove it and either reseed or resod this fall. Starting with a clean slate and healthy lawn will make maintenance less of a nightmare in the years to come!
