I have 4 palms planted in the ground in my front lawn, 2 have fond pull and look pretty sad they other 2 don’t look to well put don’t have the fond pull, I have 4 more in the back yard that are in garden beds that are doing great, I’m wondering if this might be because I let the grass grown right up to the trunk which might have lead up to too much water or mositure being around the trunk, as the ones in the backyard all have stones around them.

whats your thoughts or ideas ???

Small palms that are not established can get spear pull/cold damage easy.   Remove grass and mulch/stone around them but that was not the problem.  Treat with hydrogen peroxide

Also the one in pic 4 could probably be trunk cut

Cold damage from the winter. It usually appears after some warm Spring days.

Get the peroxide and copper fungicide treatment into the hole.

I'm surprised. Trachycarpus is pretty tough. How cold did your place get?

You didn't fertilize the lawn, did you?

That’s pretty cold for a young Trachycarpus . I hope they pull through for you.

The good news is, your fronds are not totally charred. You do need to pull all the dead fibers/fronds out of the hole or it will decay causing ultimately death. Also recommend peroxide in the crown and copper fungicide drench (once only). 
fish emulsions or something organic the palm can immediately retrieve to help kickstart new growth.

With your winter night temperatures, you need heating (cable or lights) and wrapping.

I am Texas and my palms also need heating and wrapping.

Palms are pretty time-consuming hobby!
