Lawn Care: Questions & Answers

Q. We have noticed at the bowling green the grass is becoming patchy in places and our own lawn has similar brown patches, what causes this?

A.  When fine turf is frequently mown and may be underfed it can get diseases such as red thread and dollar spot. Brown patches on garden lawns are more likely caused by dog waste, bitch urine, weedkiller or too much fertilizer.
