We took up the paving slabs and put down a new lawn in our tiny city garden 18 months ago. It's survived, and even done pretty wlel, but I wouldnt go so far as to say it's flourished. In particular, it has a tendency to go a bit thin and patchy. We aerate etc and mow when we should (just about). We overseeded last spring and I will need to again, imminently. It wasnt enormously successful last year.
what seed/species should I use? In winter the lawn is very damp, and in summer it gets very dry. One half of it gets a lot more sun than the other. We don't have dogs or children so it doesnt need to be particularly hard wearing.
