I have been working away from home , when i came back the lawn is looked tired, have fed and watered it, cannot get rid of the weeds which keep coming through, will i have to relay it or can something be done




Usually I would say - you have fed it and you can also treat the weeds, but mostly it needs regular mowing at least weekly in the growing season - so can someone do this while you are away? But all our lawns are looking poor in the drought areas which includes the Midlands so I would not worry too much till you have real rain and then it will look better.

Weeds are a constant battle on lawns, so if you relaid it you would still find them growing after a while. Use Weed and Feed, but you should only do it if rain is expected within a day or two unless you water afterwards. Directions are on the pack.
