our lawn, which was flourishing this time last year developed lots of yellow patches in the autumn, and many of these have now developed into areas of dead grass with no new growth underneath. The whole lawn is affected. Some people have suggessted it may be due to crane fly larvae - we live in Oxfordshire - any ideas what it may be, or how best to find out? Thanks. Karin Taylor



Unfortunately there's a lot of things it could be - fusarium patch, dollar spot, rubble under the grass, dog urine, so some more info would be good. How long as the grass been in situ? Is it luxury turf or standard grade? Do you have a dog? Do you live in a new build house? Did the affected areas appear shortly after mowing? And a photograph of the lawn, and a close up of an affected area, might also be useful.
