@dovefromabove.. taht is what hubby said.. "not m fault" man told me it is just that.. but if it gets no better in teh next few weeks to call them back.. thou some of their fertilizer is still undissolved on the lawn.. he said it is slow release.. i just stopped myself from LOL to that.. anyway i will be keeping close eye on it and see.. told hubby to cut grass longer while weather is so unpredictable..

so we will see.. they come again in september.. so they can look at it then...

@geoff..  not it doest sound at all.. fingers just seize up and i cant even manage to click on the misspelled words.... anyway back  to my lawn..

green thumb man came today.. his verdict.. it is just dry underwatered grass. and is suffreing short cut mowing burn.. he tested for disease..found none.. said it is still healthy just suffering from teh very hot weather (yesterday 25c) then heavy rain today.. must admit not had much rain in the last month.. so very dried out.. i know this becuase the soil when weeding is like concrete.. so  no treatment needed.. they will scarify it and airate it oct..

so dunno whether to be happy or just fobbed off..
