It’s too late in the year to put down seed. It won’t have enough time to sprout and take root. Grass seed itsn’t cheap, so don’t waste your money applying it now. Wait until spring and then you can dethatch, areate, fertilize, and re-seed.

I agree with PP, wait until the spring and see how the lawn is.  A lot of grass goes dormant when it is too hot so you still might have it come back in the spring with good watering.

+1 what PPs said…you missed the boat this year.  You can seed in the spring and should get some decent results, but early fall is the ideal time.

Part of My lawn died and it was because of Cinch bugs. It shouldn’t die for no reason!

Go to your hardware store and take some pictures in. Those guys know exactly what to do and when to do it. I’ve always gone to my local Ace Hardware guy and his recommendations have kept my lawns looking good and I have a black thumb.

@NYBride_421:  If it’s dying in random patches you might have a grub problem. 

Heat/sun exposure/lack of water usually kills your entire yard.
