    Looking for some advice on my lawn. About a month ago I covered it in Evergreens feed, weed and moss killer product .

    I'ts done it's job in killing a lot of the weeds though some have returned!

    There are now lots of black patches and I am thinking about what to do next. I was thinking about overseeding it in September.

    Questions:-

    If I want to go down this route do when do I apply autumn feed to the lawn

    Should I give it another treatment of the Evergreen product before September

    I know I need to get some top soil - how much depth do I need and what coverage would I get from 25 Litres.

    I cut it on Saturday - does it look as if I am cutting it too short?

    Any tips or assistance would be good.

    Hi when did you apply the first lot of Evergreen ? are you using the top soil top dressing the lawn after over seeding ? how bigs the lawn . can't tell if you've cut it to short but it doesn't look scalped so your probably fine.

    Perhaps a photo would help. Never mind. I have to be honest and admit. A well maintaned lawn really sets off Do not rely upon what the label says. a garden. Me. I haven't got a lawn. Having studied and endured the course of, science and practice of turf culture. Truly. I couldn't afford it.

    In an advisary capacity. My first comment must be. Beware of chemicals. I am not a chemist of any sorts. I am. for what it's worth, a plant pathologist and plant & soil scientist.

    OK. Perhaps I am a bit...anti...commercialism. I have to be fair and honest. The chemical industry is vast. It really has hold of all nations by the proverbial short and curlies. My advice. Don't rely on the label.
