I noticed small circular patches on part of our front lawn. They don't seem to be burrows. I was wondering what it might be.

It may be that your lawn has developed a fungal disease called brown patch. Brown patch commonly starts as a small spot and can quickly spread outwards in a circular or horseshoe pattern up to a couple of feet wide. Often times, while expanding outwards, the inside of the circle will recover, leaving the brown areas resembling a smoke-ring. A healthy lawn will recover when the weather warms in the spring so there may not be anything you need to do other than regular mowing, watering and feeding. Best wishes with your lawn!
