New turf layed in June

Hello.
I recently had new turf layed in June 2019 - Inverness, North Scotland. Over the last month or so it has started to yellow. Should I be concerned it's dying or is this normal coming into the winter months?

    I'd not worry about it at this time of year. Lawns are never at their best now. 
    I'm sure it'll perk up in Spring
    Devon.

    Has it been scalped with the mower? It does look worse than it should for this time of year.
    Also - have you been using it quite a lot? I know the north east has been wetter than the norm this year, so it should have rooted well enough through summer, but it's wise to try and not overdo using it for quite a while. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....


  • Thanks 

    I did cut it quite late on and in hindsight fairly close. We've kids that have been on it a fair bit but trying to keep them off it. Would you expect it to recover? TIA

    It should do @grantjohnston3285. If you're using it a fair bit next year, it's probably worth keeping it on the longer side. 
    Difficult when you have kids on it though. Not really possible to have a pristine sward until they're older and discover sex, drugs and rock n roll instead  ;)

  • Yep, cut it way longer in 2020, not just a couple of settings higher, but right the way up 
  • This is now late March, and appears to be getting worse.. Anyone have any ideas to try get it to recover?!
  • Thank you, but any input on the grass itself?
