Well watered lawn, but still brown

Well watered lawn, but still brown

Q: I have been watering my lawn regularly, we are not on water restrictions in my area. Other than having a very large water bill, I still have areas that have turned brown and I have treated for bugs and fungus and I have had a certified nurseryman look at the grass and he did not find any chinch bugs what else can be wrong and what can I do?

A: The most likely problem is still water.  Either the water is not going on evenly or the soil is thinner in the areas where the grass is brown and needs more water. You did not say if you water by hose sprinkler or have a system. If you are watering by hose or by automated system, the water spray needs to overlap and not by just mist. If you have a automated system it may need a check up and some minor repairs or adjustments.
