Lawn going yellow

This time last year my garden was levelled with about 20 tons of top soil, and a new lawn was laid. I also had two soak aways put in for drainage from the garage and driveway (also new). A year on and it has started going yellow on the east side by the garage, and growth is stunted. I thought it might need feeding so I put some granular feed down about a month ago but even with the recent rain there is no improvement although the rest of the lawn looks good. There are some smaller dark/lush rings with brown centres but these are from dog wee and I can live with that, I am only concerned with the yellowing (on the right of the photo's). There is not much shade and there are no tree roots in the problem area. The west side is doing really well. Any suggestions wouold be most welcome.

How often do you mow the lawn and how short do you crop it? At the start of the year you should mow long and gradually lower the blades to the length you want. This could be the cause of the browning. I had the same on my lawn last year. Using the above method this year has had a massive impact.
