Any lawn people here? The ice and snow in my yard from the winter left me with a bunch of what looks like dead grass in a large part of my back yard. Is there anything I can do besides try to dethatch and reseed?

I’ve never had this happen before so I’m really surprised. I’m not even sure if the grass is dead or dormant so I’m tryIng to figure out the best approach, otherwise I’ll kist call my lawn service and ask them

It’s probably winter kill. With the long winter and not a ton of snow until the very end, it’s most likely dead. Dethatch it and overseed it. It may come back on its own, but it will be very thin.

I typically get the same around the edges of my driveway from clearing the snow off a foot into my grass in some places.
