How to avoid my user name

Hi
I have just signed up as the lawn destryoer. this is because i seem to have an amazing way of not being able to seed my lawn. there is a patch about 2' x 2' out of my 200' square lawned area that will not seed, i have re turfed, seeded with many different types of seed, airated the ground, watered it regulaly but it is still as bald as me. what is the problem and what am i doing wrong?
please help.
incidentally, the soil appears to be clay like but also slightly sandy. i live in the isle of man in the uk if this helps too. reasonably wet climate with warm summers and cold winters.

Have you dug down more than superficially? Is it possible that there is some sort of debris down below (boulder, chunk of concrete, buried gypsum board) that eventually kills off the grass? Was the area used as a burn pit or something years ago that sent the soil chemistry into some grass-killingly high pH zone? (I have had 'dead zones' in the lawn which turned out to have concrete chunks and plywood buried below them.)

Well, where do you live? That has a lot to do with the situation. What kind of grass are you trying to seed? That's a big factor, also.
I mean, are your trying to seed bermuda? or a cool season grass like fescue or bluegrass? Tell us more, please.

I suggest having soil tests made for starters. You collect *several* soil samples - do not mix them - and take them to your county agent, assuming you live in the U.S.A. The information you receive will tell the types and amounts of fertilizers, lime, and such, you need. There may be a small fee, but it is well worth it for the information you get.
