There is something happening in my yard that I do not understand. In two places there are circles of dead grass. One is about 15/20 feet in diameter and the other is about 8/10. The grass slowly dies and is gone in a couple of years. Only bare soil and a little moss left. The circles are more like rings about a foot or two in width. The interior of the circles are not changed, healthy grass. Just the strip around the circumference. The circles are in part shade on a slight hill and fairly close to a tree line. Been there a few years and nothing grows in the rings.
I have not used fert--chemicals--ar anything that I can think of that would cause them. I know about designs in crops in England and such Et's but this ifs for real.
Any of you guys dealing with growing thins got any ideas. We live on several acres--have a garden---5 food plots---and about 7 acres we mow so we are not greenhorns---I don't think. Just puzzled. Thanks for your help.
I made a couple of pictures but can not post pic on here .

But if you ain't twirling while you pee in the yard, you've done took half the fun out of the experience!

Fishboy I just wish I was man enought to twirl a circle like the the big circle. \:\)

Sharpshooter are you serious about the fairy ring deal--never heard of it..

In the back of my mind I think there is something about lawn circles but cannot pull it out or may just be wishful thinking.
Going to talk to the UT Ag station at Jackson about it, they are supposed to be the experts.
Thanks again.

Fairy rings are associated with mushrooms. You also have necrotic ring spot that can do it. Both are fungal. Look it up, its no joke.

Only thing I can figure is maybe something is buried in the ground shallow and when it gets hot dies off

I was thinking the same thing

your might want to try this, find some "activated charcoal" and sprinkle it on the area in question, the activated charcoal will draw out any impurities in the soil, many factories keep it for any type of spill, this may not be your case but its worth a try and it does nothing but help, it will not hurt non trouble areas

septic tank?

We have a beautiful pasture every spring. Once it gets hot and dry, you can see where the soil is thin pretty quick.
