Howmuch time do you have sunflower?
there have been a few threads about producing top quality lawns
if you really want one then preparation is everything. Spend from now until September killing and removing weeds, turning over the ground ...ideally getting some compost in......and firming, raking and levelling. levelling with your heels and raking several times. Bury the existing turf upside down in the trenches you make when turning. Aim to achieve a good fine tilth
come September you can sow seed. Simply research available fine quality seed mixes.
a good quality cylinder mower is essential. next spring lightly top dress your lawn and feed. Next autumn scarifying, spiking and top dressing will be required.
a lot of work. Fine lawns need regular low mowing, watering and feeding
