They are just seed heads from a weed. Give it a good rake to get rid of the dry grass and thatch then treat with a Autumn feed. You may need to rough up the surface and plant some Autumn seed on the dead patches.

Bit late for nematodes you could use provado, squash any you see, they can't fly so you have time to get them, treat all your tubs and houseplants.
