Every homeowner has to go through dealing with these dead spots and bare patches in your lawn, time to time. Even though you take a better care of your lawn, but a time will come when it needs a repair, sooner or later. Animals, poor soil conditions, and soil infections can cause dead patches in your lawn. They look like brown, dead spots which have no or minimal growth of lawn grass. They are not difficult to fix.
Your lawn grass always needs an aerated soil which can hold moisture to drain excessive water in it. You should aerate the whole lawn, even though there are only a couple of dead areas in your lawn. This can improvise the complete health of your lawn turf. Aerating can easily pull out small plugs from the soil. These holes can help water to go deep into the soil.
