2) Dig down (using a garden spade) about a foot along the length of affected lawn. Try to achieve a 1" by 12" space or trench. In this space either pour concrete or insert a non permeable material such as solid plastic sheet or metal sheet. The action of the spade will chop off the offending roots and the infill will ensure that no roots from the hedge will be able to get to the lawn.
3) Reseed or re-plug the affected area with Lawns in Spain seed, patches or plugs.
4) Apply Lawns in Spain wetting agent to the brown area every week for 3 - 4 weeks and hand water, while grass recovers.
