Thanks dove, yes, how strange I don't look like a supermodel too....nothing to do with too many biscuits... i don't want to use any chemicals so seaweed powder sounds good,I knew the pool would wreck the lawn,I'm not precious about it, just want it to be reasonably nice grass for them to play on, had a good go at it in autumn but should have thought I was wasting time and waited til spring, I'll do it this month

Hi lizzie and Dave, thanks both, it does seem badly drained, I don't feed it, that's really good advice re the paddling pool, I will get seed for shade and see about a sand area ( could maybe double as sandpit?) thanks again, I'll get working on it and let you know

our east facong back lawn is awful,it's nearly 2 years old and only looked good for the 1st 3few months it was laid as turf, last september i thoroughly aerated it, scattered sand and a little topsoil, reseeded ...and i may as well have done nothing, most is patchy, but where we have the paddling pool in summer is just mud, it looks loke it stays really wet, we have cut the fig tree back a lot ( nov) so hope this will get a bit more light to it, shall I REPEAT THE AERATING, SAND, SEED AGAIN? AM i ONTO A TOTAL LOSER? OH EXCUSE shouting hadn't noticed had done that sorry!! any advice very welcome

I'm so sorry I shouldn't have said who won, I was only a week behind, I  didn't ask him, I thought of it but didn't want to hold him up and to be honest was a bit flustered!
