My grass is dying in a couple of spots in my yard from
1. There is a drainage that runs through the edge of my yard and after it rains there is a couple of areas were the water sits till it dries up.
2. Right at the end of the hose from my sump pump and i do move it around every couple of days.
So my question is there anything i can do to keep the grass alive, special fertilizer or special grass seed to plant instead? I have just a few small problem areas were some of my neighbors of good portions of there yards with this problem. I would just like to keep the grass looking pretty good i know this isn't a town yard but the grass is dead and brown and everything around it is green.

My grandpa had that problem in a few spots in thier yard he bought a special grass seed made by scotts but i cant think of the name right of the bat. He got it at Home Depot. Im sure Lowes and Manards would have it. Im sure somone here knows the name ill reply back if i think of it. Hope this helps, Jordan

Mine is mostly brown. I am not going to try to keep enough water on it to keep it green. Maybe it will kill some of the weeds.



That's what I get for not reading the full title to this thread, mine's dying from lack of water. Ya'll carry on and don't mind me.

Hi All,
I think that the first thing that you should do is a plug aeration. I have had great luck with this.
