It has been raining regularly in Brisbane so it hasn't been necessary to manual water. The lawn gets fertilised one a month in the Spring and Summer time. I have also tried treating for grub worms with spray solution, its doesn't seem to have any effect.

Hi Phi,

Thank you for contacting Yates.


To check for curl grub, in the evening, pour a bucket of soapy water (dilute a few drops of concentrated dishwashing detergent in a 9 litre bucket of water) into an area of lawn adjacent to a damaged area. Cover this spot with a damp towel and check for grubs sheltering beneath the towel in the morning.


If grub is the issue, try "Yates Grub Kill & Protect for Lawns"  against a large range of common lawn pests including curl grubs, various beetle larvae, caterpillars and provides up to 6 months protection for your lawn. The product is available in both granular and concentrated liquid. Please read more of the product from the following link:


Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
