As many of us are getting into the swing of yard work, several are trying to figure out how to get rid of patches of dead grass. In places where just last year you saw green grass, this year many spots are still brown -- while everything else is turning green.
At Rick's Garden Center in Colorado Springs, they say people asking what's happened to their lawns have been the number one question of the year. They've sold 40 percent more grass seed than usual.
Even the best grass-growers around have had issues, golf courses are even having trouble.
"People who have always had a wonderful lawn are wondering what they heck happened, and it's not just them -- don't feel alone," says Mike Estes, owner of Rick's Garden Center.
