    advice on encouraging growth back into a lawn after winter


    My lawn really struggles to grow back after the winter. I could be imagining it but I feel like it’s finding it more difficult each year. What can I do to encourage lawn growth in the spring? I want to be prepared for this winter so I can avoid my lawn declining further.

    "Some times this can happen from poor soil underneath take it you have tried Miri all grow etc if the rest of the grass grows well could be an idea to dig that area up add new soil compost and new grass seed or even new turf"

    "You should use a lawn aerator to create holes in the soil in order to help lawn grasses grow. In compacted lawns, aeration improves soil drainage and encourages worms, microfauna and microflora which require oxygen.
    Also there are autumn and spring feeds which work a treat on most lawns"

    "Low cost solution would be to water often and get hold of some grass fertiliser."
