I always have a rubbish lawn as the ground underneath is really hard with clay soil and lots of kids and me on it, so really trying this year. I de-thatched in spring, added feed, aerated etc yet mine still had all that dead bits of grass. My lawn mower needs a new blade as that could also be part of the problem. Taking the rake out and raking up the dead bits, keeping the mower on the top setting and watering all has helped green it up. Good luck!
