At this time of year you should not have brown patches. If you have a dog, this is number one suspect. But in May the most likely cause (if you have a lot of brown patches) is grubs in the soil. I would try some watered in bug killer available from Lawns in Spain. If this is the case not treating could result in loosing your entire lawn.

Weed Killer Instructions


Posted by: Andrew
Date: 2020/05/16

Having read the instructions for the pre emergent weed killer, it says to 'water on the lawn to just wet the surface' Does that mean a very light sprinkle, so that when you apply the pre emergent, it soaks down to soil level easily? Also, I was going to apply some now as I am pulling all the crabgrass and poa annua by hand to stop anymore growing. Is that ok?

Weed Killer instructions

Firstly please see: http://www.lawnsinspain.com/lawn_calendar.htm
The idea of pre -emergent weed killer is to apply to established lawns, enough to wet the soil and "water in" so you help disperse the chemical into the top few inches of soil (i.e. Where the weed seeds are) This chemical sits in the soil for several months, so have no intention of sowing any grass seed on it cause it will not grow. Applying pre-emergence is risky and can have unexpected results on new lawns. As for pulling up the crabgrass - leave it until you see new seed heads developing. Its larger and easier to handle, and remember you can pull up almost anything if the soil is wet. As for the POA it seeds so quickly you have to be quick. Also remember that POA is now (May) starting to die.

On the contrary John, this is the best time to sow seed in Southern Spain. Unfortunately its the most difficult time to keep it damp. Warm season (Drought Resistant) grass will not germinate until the temperature we have in May. Cool season grasses will germinate ate any time of year, but a little slower in the Winter. The best time to sow Warm season grass seed is late April/March, the best time for Cool season Grass seed is Spring or Autumn (is best).

Grass Rolls South of France

The big benefit with Golf Courses is full time greenskeepers. Turf is really, really expensive and the transportation cost, together with the urgency to unroll the turf and lay it before it goes yellow is a real problem. The best solution for this application is seed and keep it wet!!. Rough, Fairway to putting green we have seed to suit. Put it down now and you will be cutting it in under 2 months, but warning, time this season is running out for warm season seed to germinate before the Autumn rains (and the cooler weather)

Brown Patches


Posted by: David in Estepona

Hi, I have just returned from being stuck in England to find many brown areas on my lawn despite the gardeners efforts. In my lawn there are caterpillars that I believe are fall army worms. Take a bucket and put in a good couple of gallons of water , then stir in gently 2 or three tablespoonsful of washing up liquid. Dont make bubbles! Pour this mixture all over and around the edges of the bare patch to thoroughly soak the ground. If there are these caterpillars you will see them climbing up out of the ground and onto the grass.They don't like the soap. A horrifying sight!!.As the season moves on - towards the Fall (autumn) they become more numerous and will eat your lawn.

Hi, I am in Estepona. For the last three years my grass has been destroyed by these pests. I call them caterpillars but they seem to be classed as worms.They do start off making brown dead patches which quickly spread with devastaing effect. What product(s) can I buy and the best way to use them? David

So is there nothing that will kill these caterpillars? Or something to kill the moths that breed them? If not, what is the solution? I am averse to green concrete.
