    It depends on what caused the dead patches. Could be shade, could be overwatering, could be dog urine. Give us more details.

    Norma, since burmuda grass is so hard to kill it could also be lack of water in those places.

    Thanks for replying-I think it was a dull lawn mower blade for the last cut...

    Maybe it is grubs as they can kill grass. I'm not sure if you have them where you are in Georgia. Google grub worms and you may find a lot of info such as if they are in your area and maybe will have pictures of lawns with grub infection.

    Ironite Fertilizer. Greens it up in a couple of days.
