I need to feed my lawn this looks in a v poor state, 90% moss and weeds with a bit of grass in there.  As it is shady I have been recommended not to scarify until the spring, so was thinking I will feed it now, and then weed and feed again in spring / scarify and then overseed.

Any recommendations on which lawn feed to purchase for autumn ? It is 350sqm area.  I can see that some feeds have moss killer in them.  I'm concerned if I use that that all I will be left with will be bare mud. 

Any advice ? Thank you.

Why not over seed in autumn, it is a better time than spring.

Hi Peanuts3, if your lawn has been left to get to the point where it is almost all moss, it will look pretty bare if you scarify it - idea is not to let it get too bad before you start work on it.  I personally wouldn't feed it now - you'll feed the moss as well.  Maybe put Evergreen autumn feed on it to at least kill of some moss and give the grass a fighting chance and then work on it over spring.
