    They are just seed heads from a weed. Give it a good rake to get rid of the dry grass and thatch then treat with a Autumn feed. You may need to rough up the surface and plant some Autumn seed on the dead patches.

  • My thanks Lyn, I will give that a go. We set the lawn about 15 years ago and this is the first year this has happened.

    I think it's just hungry and will recover quickly.

    Does it get a lot of traffic Tracey - dogs, children etc? That causes lots of bare, worn areas. I'd agree that it just looks as if it needs a little tlc image
