Grass Brown and won't grow in places

Jason27300July 24, 2014


First time post.

My grass is only growing in patches and there is quite a lot of brown grass. The grass was planted about 3 years ago and seems to be getting worse.

Any ideas?

Here is a close up if this helps. Any help would be appreciated as I have no idea what to do about it.

Wow! Last week it was a guy from Surrey and now Scotland! Blimey!!

Do you water and if so, how often and for how long?

What was your daytime high temperature average for the past week?

When were the last two times you fertilized and what did you use?

Do you have a dog?

Thanks for your response.

I never water but in Scotland we get a lot of rain. I guess recently it has been quite hot. I think it was 21 Celsius the other day and low probably about 12 during the night. I haven't fertilised since last year. I think it was evergreen 4 in 1. Yes I have a small dog (Dachshund). I also put down lawn friendly weed killer in May.

I have had this problem for a while but it has gotten worse this year.
