Guanoboost FAQ

1. Why should I use GuanoBoost?

2. Why is my lawn turning brown?

Firstly, you need to understand why your lawn turns brown or gets brown spots/patches.

Here are some of the common reasons why your lawn is turning brown or having brown spots/patches:

Thatch- is the accumulation of dead and decomposing organic material nestled between grass blades and the root system. A little thatch can be a good thing, but a layer over 1,2cm thick can choke the grass by preventing the flow of air, water and nutrients, making your lawn more susceptible to pests and diseases.

Over-fertilisation- Excessive nitrogen can cause unfortunate brown spots. Do not overfeed your lawn by fertilising more often than is recommended, and do not fertilise on hot days.

Poor soil quality- Poor soil quality can lead to brown, bare patches. Try pushing a long head screwdriver 8cm deep into your soil. If you meet too much resistance, try aerating and covering the area with top dressing to add beneficial organic matter.

Dog urine- Urine from animals like dogs can create brown spots on your lawn since it's high in nitrogen. These brown spots have brown centres surrounded by dark rings.

Under-watering and overwatering- Excessive moisture can lead to brown patches, so be sure to water your lawn early in the morning before 9 am or between 4 pm and 6 pm to ensure that the grass dries out fully before nightfall. If you allow your lawn to remain wet all night, it will become more susceptible to diseases and pests.

Grubs- Grubs are plump, white beetle larvae that can cause severe damage by eating roots. Their feeding habits can lead to a uniform, sponge-like brown spots in your grass.
