this website is really good.
Expect the lawn to look a lot worse before it gets better. I started work on mine last autumn. the section i hit hard looked so bad i stopped short of completing the whole lawn. It was basically mud! I look at it now and its the best bit all green and no moss while the rest is still bad.
I treated my 500m2 lawn today with a 4 in 1 moss killer/feed as rain is likely over next few days. I will then rake it (electric one I got cheaper long term than hire) in 2 weeks and over-seed in about 3 weeks or so.
Thats seems to be the general idea from the lawn smith guy.
Overall my lawn is a bit lumpy and i often scrap with the ride on mower even on high setting. Only two ways to stop this are to replace the entire lawn or to lift turf and remove soil in high spots but its a big lawn and a lot of work so leave that until late spring early summer IMO.
