New build lawn, white patches, any ideas?

It's not something I've come across, but this sounds as if it may be the cause 

It's interesting that it says it can be spread by garden machinery - one of the hazards of using a visiting lawn care company I suppose

Can we have a close up of some of the affected grass/leaves please.

Has the lawn had any fertiliser or other treatment this summer?

Autumn is here - flowers don't last for ever - they'll fade and turn brown and papery.  

Leave the flower heads on over winter to  protect the buds below them from the winter weather, then cut the dead flower heads off in May and the new growth will start to appear.

Good morning Clari  and the rest of you as you arrive 

Another beautiful morning of sunshine and birdsong here in Norfolk - but it does have a real hint of autumn - I've just wandered around the dewy garden in my jimjams and bare feet and left wet footprints on the terrace.

The two pattypan squash plants are making a bid for world domination - they are HUGE!!!  We have loads of squashes and OH is going to take some to the farm shop to sell, and I've plans to make some chutney ... we're eating squash every day - last night it was grated and turned into a salad with some chopped mint and parsley ... Did I mention that only one of the plants is producing at the moment ... the other is still at the 'male flowers only' stage ...........
