Hi all,

I laid some turf last summer, which looked great for 2-3 months but slowly deteriorated.. I watered it lots when i laid it but only mowed it after 3 weeks, which may be one of the reasons). I subsequently laid a further 50m2 in the same area in October, which is looking brilliant still (mowed it after 10 days).

The original turf looks like a big muddy mess at the moment. I have researched it a bit and raked it a couple of times and stabbed it to oxygenate, which may help it a bit.

Has anyone got any advice on how i can get it to come back nice and thick in the spring? Should i get some seeds and seed it as well? and if so, when?? many thanks
