 Hi all seasons greeting to my fellow gardeners. I have uploaded two pics i hope you can see them. As you can see the lawn is in dire straights, before winter i scarified, and used my fork(sorry forgot technical term) and added sand two it before using seed. I have also tried patch n grow am i fighting a loosing battle?

    You may be expecting too much, too early. can't see what area of the country you are in (it is always useful to put your general area in your details to help people advising you on plants and planting)image

    Apologies Artjak.

    My garden is a North/NNE facing garden, in Cleethorpes. It was layed about two years ago, layed according to all the advice you see on here or in Gardening books. IE Raking, compacting removing large stones and raking again?

    It looks a heck of a lot better than mine - but a good raking, regular mowing (not too short), and a  dose of spring lawn fertilizer and it'll soon be looking fine image

    Don't think you've got any need to worry.

    Hi mate, remember it wont really start growing just yet so anything youve done in winter wont really look any different. id wait til its a bit warmer, has grown a little, give it a small top cut and re-assess.

    You've not got the best aspect for grass to be in it's glory but the advice so far is sound. The grass  just need a few more weeks and some better, warmer weather - like all of us!image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
