    Water probably  :)
    Many lawns are a bit dry just now.

    Can you give some more info - aspect, other planting nearby, soil type, climate etc?
    Some pix would help too  :)

    It looks as if it's been cut very short. 
    I'd keep it on a higher cut, especially as most areas of the country have been dry and sunny, and grass will struggle if it's scalped. 
    It probably just needs water  :)
    Do you ever feed it or anything? I don't do mine very often, but a feed in spring usually gets it going. The only problem just now is, with ground being dry, the granular feeds can't be used. I'd wait until that's had some decent rainfall, then look at a feed.

    Thanks fairygirl....for my interest what feed do you use?

    I usually use a proprietary brand, or just a B&Q equivalent or similar, but I don't usually have to worry about the watering of ground in spring, so it's quite easy. I think the last one I had which was a feed only, was by Scotts. 
    You could also used liquid seaweed if  you have it. It's ideal for foliage of all sorts, so it would give it a boost temporarily.  :)
