So seems like it's the time of year to sort my grass out, used to be lovely but past couple of years been neglected and have bald patches in places and lots of weeds.

I've done a weed and feed process so now ready to fix it.

I'm going to scarify it first, then aerate it, then seed it, topdress it then seed again.

I'm not sure how much top dressing I need though, and online calculators seem to always advise bulk bags.

My lawn is in 2 parts but is around 70 square meters in total.

Anyone know how much top dressing I require

Watch Daniel Hibbert on YouTube, he bangs on about Jacks Magic. His lawns do look amazing when he's finished with them.

For seeding I used Gro-sure smart lawn seed, earlier in the year, have to say the grass is nicer blade type than current lawn, and so far, weed free I'm actually thinking of redoing my whole lawn in this.
