Determine the Cause

There are a few different things that you can do to treat brown patches on your lawn. The first thing that you should do is determine the cause of the brown patches. This is because there are several different causes of brown patches, and each will require a different brown patch treatment option.

Fungal Growth

If you determine that the brown patches are caused by fungal growth like mushrooms, then you should use a fungicide. This will help prevent the brown patches from getting worse and spreading to other areas of your lawn.

Drought Conditions

If you determine that brown patches are caused by drought conditions, then it is recommended to water more frequently or install an irrigation system in order to keep your grass hydrated enough so that it can fight off brown patches on its own. 

Mechanical Damage

If brown patches are caused by mechanical damage, such as people walking too close to the grass or pets digging holes in it, then you will need to lay sod over any bare spots that have been created by this type of activity so they can grow back naturally without being exposed again while they grow strong enough roots and blades to not brown out again.
