Q.Sodded lawn 2 yrs ago, died back in winter and since then clumps of grass with dead spots

Zone 98329 | Anonymous added on April 6, 2020 | Answered

Sod looked great first year but did not come back well next spring. Lawn is over a septic drain field, and wondering if contractor should’ve put down a heavier soil layer — maybe too much drainage, not holding enough water. It looks like a doll’s head, little green anemic clumps all in rows. I have re-seeded twice and no results.
