I have very little knowledge of lawn care and gardening in general but have seen advertisements for Autumn lawn care. My lawn, which is about 16 months old, last had a 'feed and weed' in June this year and is in reasonable condition; soem clover, which I believe grings nitrogen to the soil, but no moss.

Does it actually need anything on it now? If so, what and how much should it cost - the lawn is about 400 square metres.

Thank you for that. I will give me lawn soem 'feed and weed' based upon that advice. A couple of questions:

Is November too late to do this?
How much should i expect to pay for a lawn approximately 400 m2?

PS Someone told me recently that slag can be used as an Autumn lawn feed- is this correct?
