My lawn still has yellow patches which we thought were from lack of water in the winter. The rains have come and all of the lawn is beautiful except for these patches. I did the can test for chinch bugs but don't see any. Help?

Nutrient deficiency, dog spots, drought and disease can all cause yellow patches in the lawn. If you haven't fertilized, do so now with a product containing iron. Lack of iron and lack of nitrogen can both cause yellow patches. Good luck with your landscape!
