We had a new lawn laid about 6 weeks ago, most of it is green and healthy and growing well.  We recently noticed two square patches that appear brown, dry and not to be growing. Does anyone have an idea what this could be?  They look as though someone has placed an object on top of them and killed the grass, the site is sunny, open and of course wet!  Any ideas please?

do you have a dog?

no, and no dogs can enter the garden, could it be a fox?

If its square it's unlikely to be an animal I think.

Are you sure you didnt leave something on your lawn recently?  I once laid a small cloche on the lawn during a hot summers afternoon....prob only for couple of hours...and it killed the grass.

2 square patches, are they whole squares of turf?
