Looks like you all had a great day. I would have loved to join you, but the distance and other commitments prevented it. Another day perhaps. 

I will have to be content with all your pics. Keep them coming.

Rhod I've never heard of the scarifier blades. Can you get them for any type of mower?  Mine is a rotery mower.

I used a 50/50 mix of multi purpose compost and soil, but I didn't have a black plastic dustbin full of sieved soil left over from when I made my borders.

I can't see it doing any harm using all MPC, that's what is used in pots.

First thing I would do in Autumn is scarify, then I would airiate, I did mine with a garden fork. I would then use a feed weed and moss. When the moss has turned black, scarify it out with the lawn rake and then over seed any areas that need it.

This is what I would do. I am no expert, far from it. Others may well have different advice. The main thing is to enjoy.

Hi Tracy. Welcome to the site, others might contradict me with this advice.  Scarify now if you must but remember it will look worse before it looks better. I would just leave it be, cut it on a high setting when it needs it ,water it when it needs it and leave the rest until autumn.

If you can post a picture people can see exactly what problems you have and offer advice easier. To post a picture use the green tree icon on the right of the tool bar.

I didn't go to any slimming clubs or follow any set diet. I just had black coffee and dry toast for breakfast, a plain salad brown roll(no butter) for lunch and a balanced meal no later than 6 O'clock in the evening. And NO nibbles between meals except celery or carrots.
