dig out the effected area. Add new top soil amended with manure. add starter fertilizer mix well into soil. Seed and cover with shredded hay.

Very good advice but I had a similar problem and despite the doing the above, still a problem, the cause was eventually found to roots of a tree drying out the soil

How to Get a Dead Spot on your Lawn to Grow Grass


I had a couple of dead spots. One, which was there before we moved in, the other when I sprayed weed killer (which wasnt good for the grass either). I tried the turf builder, but all it did was sit on the dead spot and wouldn't even dissolve. One fine day, when I was expecting some guests, after mowing, I covered up the dead spots with the mulch (that came out of mowing) and now after a couple of weeks, I see that grass is growing in those dead spots and I cant see those dead spots anymore.
