I am experienceing issues with my front lawn. It gets a good amount of sunlight but there is a large gap of grass that cannot seem to grow anything? What should i do?

Lay down pavers ... :p;):D

It's hard to say what's wrong, could be bad soil, could be residual herbicide toxicity, could be the results of what was planted there previously - Black walnut trees, for instance, are notorious for acidifying the soil and stunting/preventing the grown of other vegetation.

You might try doing a soil test in the bald areas for nutrients and pH levels and adjust them accordingly. Sometimes seed just won't germinate, no matter how hard you try, but laying sod will take hold and go, you might try this ofter the soil test.
