Josephinus - a couple of odd sounding questions for you. It might help us work out the best plan of action for you.
Over the winter has your garden been terribly water logged? Has the grass been regularly submerged or left with huge puddles for a few days at a time?
What is it like now? Can you walk on it without the mud squelching up your shoes? Has it gone hard and dry?
Does your lawn normally get a lot of traffic through it (children / animals) that would damage any new growth / be something we'd need to consider before suggesting chemicals like fertilisers to assist you.
The fact that you already have new growth is a fantastic sign!
