Strange dead patch in my lawn?!?!?
 
Seems sorta odd how just this spot has died off?

FYI: Its RTF.

Looks like somebody dumped some old gas there.

NOPE!

I'm the only one that mows & cares for my lawn so I know everything that happens to it & when even my dogs pee's on the lawn I pour water on it & he's aways watched while in the front yard.

Nope, I have a 6 foot hedge around the yard & fencing behind it & a gate both to keep dogs from doing they're business on my lawn & to keep my dog in, I don't like my dog going on my front lawn either & that's why he is not left unattended in the front yard

No, but I do want to learn how to do that.
I'm planning on getting a tree for the back yard & that's another reason to learn how.
Yet as for the tree, the orangewood tree in the front yard seems to do well.

Well after watching the educational video,you can just quit worrying about that brown spot,as it will take care of itself,now on to the soil test and the tree.

Ok so how do I do a simple soil test & since I 1st posted this, I'm noticing more patches drying out?!?!

So I stepped up the sprinklers to an additional 2 more minutes now that it heating up in our area..

But I'm starting to worry that I have some sort of lawn virus or infestation?
