Thank you for your question. Without a bit more information, it will be difficult to advise you. There are so many reasons why a lawn might be failing.

The first question I would ask is, how much sun do you have? All lawns need full sun, 6-8 hours a day.

If you would send me some additional information I can have a better idea of wha the problem may be.

The age of your lawn

The frequency, amount and type of irrigation

Your fertilization schedule

Use of pesticides in the yard

Describe the appearance of the grass in detail and the pattern of damage.

A photo would be great.

I will attach a link to the Aggie Turf website which provides information on care of Bermudagrass.

I hope we will be able to help you resolve this problem.
