Hi thank you for reply. Is there no way of revitalising? And what kind of prep would i need to do for drainage etc at the time of laying turf  i did everything  supposed to. Leveling it etc. The dogs arent too much of an issue as they  have a specified area they use for toilet.

Looking for some advice with my supposed lawn. Turf was laid last year and it seemed to be doing well.  There was a couple of patches which i attempted  to reseed. It has now turned to a mud patch with tufts. Ive tried to lay more seeds as ive read they can germinate as low as 6 degrees. But not  happening. There are patches  that  puddles form on  also. Any suggestions on remedies  to get it looking in a better state?

Does stinging nettles give you pins and needles? I havent got any bumps you normally have at the site. Normally its just a little itchy not whole hand bad and delayed reaction. 

Thanks for tetanus reminder. I def should you never know what you are going to come into contact with.

Good evening. I was doing  some weeding today. Little ones along a fence. Something sharp  pricked my thumb. But its a few hours later and i have pins and needles in not just my thumb but several other  fingers. Should i be worried? Anyone know what type of weed has this effect?
