  • I suspect a chemical spill. Ask the customer if they tipped the mop/car bucket water on it.

    What is going on with the path? Is that concrete slabs painted with grey paint!

  • Cheers mate,  yes the paving was already painted ( I think) seems odd to me but not sure if there's anything I can do with it

    • looks like that paint for concrete floors, be interesting to see how it fares out doors. That grass may have been scorched by something or had a bit of fungal disease, but if not is competing with the privet hedge for water anyhow, if watered heavily/ regularly it should come back, the alternative would be some ground cover plants on that bit but they would tend to encroach on the path and need cutting back

  •  looks chemical they seems to be a bit of rubbish in the hedge wonder if they have tryed putting weedkiller on and had a misshap

    on the other hand its been quite dry and windy might be lack of water with the hedge on one side and the path on the other both taking moisture out of the ground 

  • Definitely something spilt or weedkiller overspray

    Hi Stephen, 

    by the shape of the patches  it looks like something was poured onto it and ran , to me anyway. 

    I would agree with what billybop said to remove the grass from that area as it's in no man's land. Might a grey/black/purple crushed slate latex on a non woven weed suppressant by a good solution, would blend in with the colours in the garden??.From the photo Id let the hedge grow out more but I don't see the whole perspective so it might look odd.


    good luck anyway

      Fuel spillage perhaps ?

        God only knows John,


        these are clients we are talking about here!!😂

        • I have a client who dislikes ants, to the point of pouring boiling water directly onto the lawn, they were at a loss to understand why the grass inexplicably died in these areas
