Autumn lawn feeds are really not necessary. A lot of hype about it....to repeat what I have said before, WHY would you logically apply an autumn feed to grass??
I regularly applied autumn feed but then started experimenting. No discernable difference either in the autumn or in fhe lawn the following season.
My advice is to apply a moss killer, rake/scarify it, scatter seed where the lawn is thin and then TOPDRESS.
top dressing is one of the best treatments for a good lawn........it helps even out hollows and bumps, creates a good environment for fhe grass roots and even feeds it slightly. this is what I will be doing to my front lawn this weekend, weather permitting, to continue what I no do every year.
Re "discernable difference" , There is a noticeable difference with top dressing ....a long term difference
