Brown spots can be caused by drought, disease or insects so it's difficult to diagnose without seeing it. Without a proper diagnosis I can only suggest you dig out the affected area and reseed (if it's bermuda) or re-sod (if you lawn is St. Augustine). After digging, sprinkle some compost over the soil before setting your new sod or overseeding. Since sod already has established roots, you will only need to water deeply once each week to help the sod take root in the new soil. If you sow seeds, keep the area moist by watering several times a day until the grass sprouts and develops a sturdy root system. Best wishes with your lawn.
