We gardeners will always disagree. It's what makes us fascinating
i have gone through the perfect lawn ambition stage......fine grass seed, spiking, raking, top dressing, annual re-seeding where appropriate, twice weekly mowing, autumn and spring feeding, summer boost feeding, and.......treatment for leather jackets and chafers. For me, leather jackets persist in their grass root diet for a good while yet. However symptoms would also include yellowing grass and bare patches
Every lawn is different. Mine is on free draining soil. However my back lawn is growing on heavier soil and actually is lusher. It's thin though where traffic under an arch entrance is the cause.
i take advice and opinions from everyone and then decide myself on the solution.
