What's going on with my lawn?


]Hi! Can out anyone out there tell me what's going on with my lawn? Back in June I had a nice looking lawn. Now my lawn is really thin throughout the whole yard with several brown spots. My lawn has pretty much stopped growing. I'm pretty sure it's getting enough water. I live in georgia and we have gotten a ton of rain this summer.

How old is this lawn?

It's very typical for people who are seeding new lawns to use a "grass seed mix." Some of it comes up quickly, but only lives a short while (perhaps just one year), and some of it takes a long time to germinate, but ends up being your permanent grass. With nothing more than that to go on, it'd be my first guess.

It's a new house with bermuda sod that was put down sometime in february. I fertilized it in early may. Perhaps the sod was too young and I fertilized it too soon?

In a dead appearing area try lifting the grass to determine if there is a viable root system remaining.

I would love to know as well. I live on Long Island and moved into a new house last year. I over seeded with Pennington tall fescue and the lawn looked amazing last year. The beggining of this year it looked good as well and I fertilized it with the same organic fertilizer I used last year. As soon as July rolled around my lawn rapidly deteriorated and now looks exactly like the OP's pic. I water everyday and fertilize 4 times a year. What else can I do?
