For the most part we have grass in our yard but there are spots here and there and i dont know why. I want to use some grass seed but I heard that there were some other putting dead grass on a dirt patch. Any help is appreciated!!

Usually when you have spots that won't grow there is some type of environmental issue such as contamination from gas or oil , or maybe weed killer , dog urine, and so on. You metioned clay earlier, is this a spot that might need a little soil added so the grass can take root. It is very hard to get grass seed to take root in clay. Adding sand or soil may help. is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
