Answer: Hi Paul,

Thank you for contacting us regarding your lawn, sorry to see the brown patches in such a beautiful garden. There are a few factors you may need to check so we can help to root the cause.

1. Has the lawn been watered regularly? Dry patches due to lack of water is the most common lawn problem. ( The product you need to apply is Yates Water Wise Soil Wetter Hose On. You can see a picture of the product using the below link.
2, Do you control lawn grubs or curl grubs? They live either in amount grass or underground to feed on the grass roots during the warmer months and pupate into beetles in autumn, most warm season grass slow down the growth and show the damage during the cooler months (The product you need to apply is Yates Baythroid Lawn & Garden Insecticide.
3. Fungal infection such as brown patch or dollar spot. ( Try Yates Mancozeb Plus Garden Fungicide & Miticide. For more info, click here:

If you have any further questions, or perhaps think there night be other potential factors at play here, please don’t hesitate to contact us again.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturalist
