We have dead spots in our lawn with matted down grass that develops thick thatch. Many lawns in surrounding neighborhood have this problem. We are located around Farrelly and Edith Ave but problem is widespread. Some people have lawn service. I don't but thatch and aerate and fertilize regularly. Neighbors are asking me what to do. I used to keep up by removing spots and replanting. This year it has taken over like so many lawns in the area. Is there any help? It is very visible in most lawns behind Sacred Heart church. I live at 3015 Edith Ave. Please help. Want to start reseeding soon. Sorry, could not send small enough picture. It is such a widespread problem we were hoping you could visit the area and see for yourself and then post a response in your Herald column. Thank you. We all hope to start our spring lawn care soon or start over with new lawns.
