    Extreme Lawn Rescue

    Looks ok to me. Just keep the needles swept up and the grass mown. Next spring treat with a lawn specific weedkiller such as verdone and all should be well

    Robotic Mower - bit the bullet

    Takes a while for the bit to learn the lawn, but basically it does just bounce around the borders! Once established it should do a decent job and you can hopefully forget all about mowing :)

    Worm casts on new lawn

    NutriFlo Casting 10LI can’t comment on its performance as I’ve not tried it but on small lawns I like you tend to brush them. Iron does deter but it’s short lived and you can’t keep repeating it.
