Advice on lawn problem
Please could you advise me on the sequence to solve my lawn problems? it's a lawn that has had no attention bar an occasional cut for many years.
Front lawn - 90% moss.
Back lawn - 40%moss, masses of dandelions & weeds
I have started by scarifying both lawns - the front one yielded moss that would have filled 4 ot 5 wheelie bins. I have sprinkled around grass seed but it has not grown but that's probably because I didn't do it properly or water enough.
Do I treat the lawn first (I was thinking of Evergreen 4-in-1) then sow seed later?
Or do I seed first and use treatment later?
Both lawns have bare patches but the moss hasn't all gone. I tried digging out dandelions but after so many years they are huge and deeply rooted. The few I got out left great craters.
Should I mix top soil with seed? or put top soil on top of seed.
