Dormant/Dead?

Hi everyone,

I am wondering about my lawn situation(WIsconsin). The yard was in great shape last year, very little weeds, and maintained. I applied winterguard around thanksgiving and the following day we received an inch of snow. I set the spreader to the proper settings. The snow did not melt until roughly 3 weeks ago.

Does this appear to still be dormant or could there be something else going on? I am a little concerned because so many sections are still completely brown. Most of the neighbors yards are pretty green now for the most part and I am wondering if the winterguard possibly burnt it and it is unrecoverable. Does applying winterguard delay greenup? Sorry the picture is sideways; when clicked it straightens out. Thanks for the advice.

Hard to tell from the picture, but in general, the browner, crispier stuff is dormant and still alive. The gray, damp, and limpier stuff is dead.

Tough winter all around.
