- Human error: Incorrect application of poison, fertiliser and watering.
- Water: Watering during the wrong time of the day, watering too much or too little.
- Soil PH: An area under trees may cause acidity, incorrect fertilising and dog (urine) spots can affect the PH of the soil.
- Borehole: Should be tested for salt and iron content (affects PH which stunts growth).
- Grey water: Ideally should be put into a tank for solids to settle and use within 2 days – tap off cleaner water from middle of tank; do not allow water to run on one spot, vary location (use PH enhancers like agrilime and gypsum).
- Untested water may eventually kill your lawn.
