    Cement mixed into soil?

    Most of them would but they don't always do so.I would also have expected to see some evidence of the dabs by them leaving circles.

    Selective Weedkiller Recommendations

    My plan is to apply a selective weed killer, scarify then top dress and seed. I may also hire a hollow tine machine to air the lawn.
