There are many different causes for a lawn to brown including lack of water or uneven watering, pest or disease issues, unsuitable soil conditions, overfertilizing or exposure to chemicals such as herbicides, dog urine, or even something unusual such as an obstruction under the soil surface that limits the grass from rooting correctly. Your lawn care service should be able to determine the cause and suggest controls or remedies. Or, you can dig a patch of affected grass including the roots and take it to your local cooperative extension office for diagnosis and control suggestions. Good luck with your lawn.
