    Mow it on high. That will encourage grass to thicken up from the base. Mow it a again a week later. Then I would add more grass seed to any bald patches.

    just reply pal I've just mowed on 4cm setting on mower and these are results
  • looks like to land below the lawn is uneven, the high bits are getting scalped and the low bits are left too long,
    you need to either reduce the high bits, by lifting the turf and removing some soil or fill in the low bits with sieved topsoil and seed over the top.
