Thank you for the question. I need more information in order to help. Can you send a photo of your backyard where the grass declines?
Tell me:
1. What variety of grass seed do you use?
2. What time of year do you seed the lawn?
3. How do you prepare the site?
4. Have you submitted a soil test in order to know what the soil might need?
5. Describe your care of the new grass seedlings.
6. How much traffic does the site receive?
7. How many hours of sun does the area get each day?

Thank you for contacting Extension.
