    I vote for get rid of the lawn.

    Seriously though, it seems like if you have him going in a better area though you could just re-sod the areas that need fixed. Water well and often until it takes.

    Thanks Lari, we will probably go with the lawn repair kit and some miracle grow potting soil again.
    It worked really well two years ago when we had a cinch bug infestation.
    Nasty critters, they lay eggs in the grass roots, then they mature into ant-sized beatles which eat the grass and defecate poison which kills the roots.
    A bag of Bug-Be-Gone takes care of the problem followed by the lawn repair kit and lots of water a few weeks later.
    Yes, I am the crazy old guy in the corner house who is a known lawn fanatic too

    ^^^
    LOL, we have a small back yard that is typical of newer California subdivisions.
    With a Bullie and a Yorkie and two cats, our animals per acre density might be a little higher than yours.
    Currently, we have a large, dead patch right by the back door and adjacent to the BBQ that I am trying to fix.
    So far so good, the unburned grass is doing well so I may try re-seeding with lawn patch this weekend after the gardeners leave.
    And again, the cleanup of the new pee-pee/poo-poo station was alot easier last evening in preparation for the garbage truck this morning.
    I think I'm having an OCD episode

    We have baby grasslings poking their heads through the Miracle Grow.
    With any luck, they shown be ready to mow in another 3-4 weeks.
    Not too bad for only a week since raking, planting, covering with Miracle Grow.
    But again, best of all, Walley-Bubba doesn't mind the more restrictive leash walk to the Dutch Ditch.
    This has been a good compromise.

    Get St Augustine! It literally will spread and cover up any dead or yellow spots. We have 2 dogs that love to have "pissing" contests..over and over and over! If it ever truly dies..we just take out that brown grass and keep lawn watered and the runners spread on their own!


    Funniest thing...we have that exact drain in an area in our side yard..guess what? We call it a "French Drain"!!! Lol!
