My lawn is heavily laden with moss, I used Evergreen lawn treatment. After a week or so I scarified it and had a lot of thatch from it. Since doing this the lawn has a lot of dead grass patches. What do I need to do to revive my lawn. PS. the lawn is about 20ft by 15ft .
Cheers Kled.

Moss in a lawn is invariably due to poor drainage / soil compaction. After you have raked out the moss, use a fork or hollow tine aerator to spike the lawn and brush sharp sand into the holes. You should notice you will have far less moss in the future.
