Hi everyone. I'm by no means an enthusiast when it comes to gardening, but I do enjoy getting some rays on me whilst trimming the lawn.
I'm in a new build, 3-4 years old. We put some lawn down when we first moved in and the first year it was lovely. Second year still really nice. Last year there was a lot of weed picking and this year is horrendous. I've just cut it for the first time this year, not too short, and of course the weeds aren't as visible at the moment but certainly still there and will no doubt be visible again in a few days.
Its also gone very patchy. I should have taken a photo before I cut it to show it at its worst.
The frustrating thing is my neighbours lawn is fine, untouched by weeds. I don't know if this means anything but it always seem to have been very damp, very squelchy. Particularly at the top. But even today, hasn't really rained hard for a while and it was quite squelchy all over.
I used some some lawn feed and weed killer last week. I did notice the weeds dying but obviously not at the roots, so they're still there.
I can take pictures if necessary, but does anyone have suggestions as to what I can do? I've just dug out 2 of the largest weeds but if I do that everywhere it'll just leave muddy holes all over.
Thanks for for your time!
