My new lawn
Me and the other half re-seeded our back lawn about 3 weeks ago. We had so many ridiculous quotes starting at £500 that we decided to do this not so big area ourselves. We left the original grass that was very very patchy and full of weeds in place. Levelled with lawn sand and added fertiliser and lawn seed. We did also remove all the weeds.
Now then after 3 weeks the lawn has started to take shape and I cut it today on the highest setting. The problem is that it is still very patchy and some areas especially around the edges has not taken. I really would love some advice on what to do now as I have never re-seeded a lawn and don't know what to expect.
Will the grass just become thicker and spread to the bald areas or should I re-seed or use patch magic or something? Here are some pics so you can see what I mean.
