My lawn looks terrible at the moment because I didn't spend enough time raking off dead leaves this year. There are lots of dead patches where the leaves shaded out the grass. If you have a lot of trees over-shadowing your lawn, you're likely to find it difficult to grow anything other than a shade-tolerant seed mix. Otherwise it's likely to be the soil that's causing trouble so keep up with the aerating and adding top-dressings. It's amazing how you can improve the soil a lawn is growing on with the grass still in place.
