Key causes of brown lawn patches and how to get rid of them
Irregular brown patches during dry weather
These types of patches tend to be caused by a lack of soil moisture.
According to the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) the best way to tackle these is by treating your lawn for drought-related problems.
It advised tackling brown patches in the autumn months.
The RHS said: “This will help the lawn to recover from recent drought but will also make it more drought resistant the following year.”
During this time, over-seed any sparse areas using an appropriate mixture and refrain from using lawn weedkillers or feeds on patches.
If the lawn is in a particularly bad state, you may need to repair or relay your lawn.
