Erosion

Depending on how wet the season has been so far, water could be running off slopes in your grass, taking all the of the grass seeds and young shoots with it. This can leave behind bare ground and dried out areas creating brown patches. To eliminate this from happening, aerate your lawn twice every year. If the aerating doesn’t solve much, consider planting ground cover or even building a terrace!

Roots

Roots from large shrubs or trees always tend to win the battle for nutrients and water, which is why the area under these plants tends to be bare and more difficult for growing grass. If this is an issue on your lawn, consider naturalizing the area under the tree and/or shrub, or mulching it.
