Hi folks, laid some turf about 3/ 4 weeks ago and after it is cut it exposes quite a bit of browm/tan areas/
Not sure how to deal with this, haven't fed it yet, probably should but green and don't know what to do next, when it grows it looks lucious and green but given a decent cut its shows brown, think it needs a feed! but don't know what it needs. any imput would be appreciated. Don't have a clue about gardening but learning.

You need to feed and water it well the first year. You may be cutting it a bit short as well. Usually if it browns after cutting it's got high spots that are getting cut shorter than other parts.

Yes I'd say you're cutting too short as well. I've put some down and left it for a least a month before touching it and even after the first cut it was still longer than most established lawns before they get mown. Then over time slowly reduce the heigth of the cut and keep well watered to encourage it to bed in.
