Just bought my new house and was told my front yard is PRG and the back is KBG. but I can't figure out how to get the green back into it. Is it a fungus, dry, or what I can't figure it out I water it just as much as my KBG 3/4 in twice a week

looks really thatchy. have you tried thinning it out with a thatch rake or regular bow rake? I would thin it out with a rake and get that dead material out of there then put down another app of fert. get a synthetic fert. like scotts or general urea 46-0-0. Just go kind of light if you get urea. Hand water a test section daily. See what happens.

You could always try putting down some seed. If you do that make sure you expose soil a bit(lot). Then water water water

July is not a good time to fertilize and seed cool season grass. Here is a lawn care calendar for Washington State:

Washington State U has other information. Use the state resources to find the best time for lawn practices. What works in one part of the country may not work in another. I am not familiar with your climate and would not be able to advise. Even the west and east parts of Washington have a different climate, don't they? Your pictures show some distress. Call the sod company and talk to them about it. They may have some advice or might even come out and fix it.
