The worst affected area is facing north west and has the extreme afternoon heat in the middle of summer. If that wasn't bad enough, I was a bit over enthusiastic with the fertiliser and there was some severe burn from the chemicals just to make sure what grass that remained was totally killed off!

So now it is roughly the footprint of a car in size and is bare soil except for some twisted weeds. And once the soil was bare, it gets that water repellent feature where any rainfall is quickly turned into runoff and does not penetrate even further than a few millimetres.
So, it was off the the hardward store and we bought a few 1.8m rolls of Sir Walter, the soft leaf buffalo grass. I teased out the old soil and removed the weeds and rolled out the grass so we will see how it survives over the winter period and hopefully with some care will be a vigorous green swathe of grass come spring.
