  • I had a similar thing happen a couple of years back............. always felt slightly guilty that I'd done something though never managed to work out what!!            Looks like you've just cut the grass................. the mowers not been leaking fuel  though you'd think that would occur on other lawns as well?

    Is it just me or can I see powdery mildew in your pic on the brown patches?

    Did you use weedkiller before? On the bottom of your boots maybe?

    Leaking lawn mower?

    To appear over 24 hours is very fast, whatever it is.

  • Thanks for your comments.

    The patches looked like dried grass with no mildew visible and I have not been anywhere near weedkiller.

    Client has an electric mower and mine is battery so I can rule out fuel leaks.

      My lawn did this earlier this year when it was really dry. Mine is caused by stones buried just under the surface, and the patches dry out way faster that any other. Has it been particularly dry?

        There is almost some symmetry to the patches it would be worth excavating a patch and checking for buried stones .  It looks more dry than scorched .

    Has the customer been killing ants with boiling water? I've seen very similar damage as a result of a kettle of hot water. Or spot weed killing with roundup?

    • PRO

      One of my customers also did the boiling water treatment earlier in the season!

  • The hydrangeas in front of the leylandii hedge looking as though they are wilting. Some areas must be pretty dry

  • Thanks for your suggestions. I will check with my client on my next visit regarding ants/weedkiller. The garden is quite well shaded and its not been too dry but it may be the surrounding trees taking all the moisture.
