"Centipede decline".


(FYI - I think your earlier comment "thanks for playing but.." was somewhat rude. If you don't want people to respond, don't ask a question. )
This isn’t the first time the OP has used “thanks for playing” when someone responds to their question. I guess it’s a go to phrase for the OP when they don’t like the response. I don’t find the “thanks for playing “ to be cute or funny, it’s snarky and condescending sounding in my opinion.

Some people get me, some people don’t. It was not meant to be snarky.

Pretty common hiccup sometimes with new builds. Long shot, but figured I’d ask.

You’ll know soon enough if it’s just drought/heat damage or a fungus/disease/bug attack. If the latter, it’ll spread quickly and take out the lawn. I know you don’t want to use chemicals, nobody does. But think of it like this - you can’t fix pneumonia with just warm tea and honey.. if it is a disease or fungus, it’ll need medicine to correct.

In reality, stuff like the caravan g is actually better to use instead of going to big box store. It’s a one time application, not a few. And it’s a granular and not a spray (sprays are susceptible to wind when applied and tend to wash off instead of dissolve in).
It is not a new build, NC211, but you could have a point, because we have filled in a lot of low areas over the past 10 years, so there are areas with overeseeding and fill dirt here and there.

We will not hesitate to use a chemical if it comes down to that.
