Re: Help with backyard grass

Hi @nasjo,


Welcome to the Workshop community. We're pleased to have you join us. 


I suspect Workshop members will need some more information from you in order to assist. Could you please add detail like where you are based, how much sun your lawn gets, and whether you know what type of turf was laid and when? It might also be helpful to know whether the grass is only recently struggling or whether this has been an ongoing problem for some time. 


You might also find some great advice in this previous discussion -
