Re: lawn

Hi Goldy,
I would need specifics of your location to assess the reason for the die back here. It is most likely that it is only a co-incidence that it has deteriorated after applying the Buffalo Pro weed and feed. Here in Sydney we have had a dry Summer followed by a dry winter and the majority of lawns near to me look similar or worse than this.
I would suggest a nourishing organic fertiliser regime in order to return it to a great state. I would start with a spray on Seasol formula. Seasol is similar to a fertiliser, though it is like a soup on a cold winters day as apposed to a full meal of steak and chips. A sick lawn needs soup not chemical fertilisers.

In the future however, once the lawn is healthy again, a slow release chemical fertiliser is the way to go for long lasting stable fetilisation.

@Goldy

Winter rainfall in Victoria was below average across the north of the state. How regularly have you been watering?

Re: lawn

Do you think its just frost that has sapped the colour of your lawn @Goldy?

 

Buffalo does have a tendancy to lose colour over winter. Buffalo grasses really don't like cooler climates - http://buffalolawncare.com.au/buffalo-grass-lawn-care/105-winter-colour-in-buffalo-lawns.html
