Have to speak up for lawns.....thee is nothing emotionally, aesthetically and pleasing than having our own piece of turf
Richard I would stop your raking now. If bare patches scatter seed. Feed with balanced lawn feed and water it in next day.
could you make a border around your lawn to minimise the area that doesn't grow well? Not straight edges but curving? It may be that you need to do a little repair work after each winter. Perhaps invest in electric lawn scarifier too
