I think that's the probable outcome for me to be honest 😒
You can get grass seed that's suitable for shaded areas, worth a try mate👍

I chuck a load of seed down very spring cos it’s really patchy then around June every year I realise I’m not that bothered and just work with what’s there.

Thanks for all the good advice lads, just put a load of seed down and waterd it, not looking for a billiard table, just something that looks pleasing on the eye 😀
As long as the seed is in contact with the ground it will germinate and sprout and watering it will help push the seed down onto real ground level.Just keep it lightly watered. The only reason it won't work is if you've got a bed of moss as the seed won't penetrate it.
Cheers mate, will give it a bit more water tomorrow if it doesn't rain.
The top part of the lawn is fine because it gets plenty of sun, it only the bottom section that is patchy as it's mostly in the shade.

Just buy twice as much as you need and lob all over is my current strategy after i murdered it with mosskiller. Does anyone remember that it was rumoured that the turf for Wembley was from Penclawdd?
Sound advice KK 🤣

Good quality turf, more expensive but better, in my opinion.
Got to prepare the soil well to have the best results.
Good advice 👍

Thanks lifey 👊

I bought a house in the Ferry in the 90’s and the Vetch groundsman Harold Woolacott lived down the road.
He used to call in for a cuppa and advise on the lawn.
It was like a f*cking bowling green. :lol:
Did he recommend sand or topsoil?

Judging by the state of the Vetch pitch towards the end of the season I'm going for sand 👍

God bless HW by the way 🙏🖤🤍

Sand or topsoil over to cover? Or... neither 🤔
