My poor lawn :(
Hi all, I moved into a new build property and they seeded the garden in September 2011. It never looked great, and now it looks pretty bad in places and I'm not sure what to do to fix it! I have put up some photos here:
(dead patches are dog urine, please ignore!)
As you can see, it's patchy. Some parts are dark green and grow very quickly, whereas the rest is light green (and has what looks like dead grass /straw everywhere) and just doesn't seem to grow at all! I haven't cut parts of it in 6 weeks!!
I've tried feeding, I've tried raking it to remove a lot of the dead compacted grass but it doens't seem to have helped much. I even got rid of the Flymo for a half-decent Bosch mower. Soil is generally loamy/clay but not too heavy and drains well. Very few weeds as I removed them all.
Can someone please advise where to start? Not really sure what to do...
