      My back lawn is recovering very well. The grass regrowth is very lush , just a couple of brown spots left. In fact gave it a feed yesterday. Front lawn is not doing as well , I reseeded some of the patches and gave a light top dressing . And being bank holiday we have plenty of rain for them :snorky:

        I've noticed the finer grasses, fescues, are slower to recover than the courser grasses but they are getting there.

        Our lawns stayed green this summer,reduced grass growth less mowing but have experieced a massive increase in clover growth. So much so the ride on mower is starting to struggle due to the thickness of the clover.
        So looks like im being forced to use a weedkilller on it soon. Ive never used a weedkiller on the lawn in 25 years.

            Amazing isn't it when the lawn returns. All mine needed was a couple of downpours and the green returned. Also the plants instantly seem to perk up after proper rain. I gave my lawn a couple of liquid feeds before the hot weather started and it seemed to make a slight difference when compared to neighbours' lawns. I don't suppose it will ever look as good as the day I laid the turfs though.
