What is this brown circle?
Hey all, long time reader but I need your help! I've only lived at this house for one year and trying to get the lawn in order. I live in Charlotte, NC and I think I have Fescue grass but not 100%. Anyway, I have this random brown circle dead patch near my side walk. I took a shovel to the area today and didn't see any grubs, but the grass pulls up very very easily. I thought maybe chinch bugs? I do have a ton of bugs in the lawn like spiders and such. I smelled the dirt too and it just smells like earthy dirt, nothing unusual. I thought it's possible that a dog walker could have had their dog pee here, but it's almost a perfect circle...not sure if dog pee forms like that?
Thanks for your help!
