Why is my lawn turning purple and brown in winter?

My lawn is turning purplish brown in color. Is this normal during winter? If not, what should I do?

Hi Raymund,

If you have a buffalo lawn, it is quite common for this lawn to have a tinge of purple during the winter months. Come spring when the weather warms up, you will find it will soon green up again. Spring is the time to apply a fertiliser e.g. Yates Lawn Master. This product will keep your lawn strong and healthy during the summer months.
