Does any one have advise for this large dead patch in my backyard lawn. I live in RI. The lawn looked great last June and July. It started to get dry in august.

I was hoping it would come back this season but looks pretty bad. I over seeded and fertilized about 3 weeks ago. The weather has not been great in New England yet.

It looked great last summer so not sure what happened

Were you still watering it when it got dry? How often and for how long?

I was still watering. August got very hot as I recall. I think I watered for about 25 minutes , 3 times a week. I set the sprinkler system for early morning(5am) to prevent loss from the heat.
