Fucked lawn advice please
Lawn was overun with dandelions. I went nuclear with killer and it has resulted in dead spots. The lawn is very wet with poor drainage and has several types of grasses going on. What would be the best way to start making it presentable? Can i just chuck seed over it abd let nature take its course?

seriously , dig it over and start again with either turf or seed . its the right time of year to give it a go . Dig some rough sand in as well to assist drainage. by the time
you fart about with the patches it would be quicker and better to dig it all up .

If you've used too much weed killer nothing will grow for years except dandelions. Try seeding it and wait.Night time is really the best time to work. All the ideas are there to be yours because everyone else is asleep. ~Catherine O'Hara

Water it, a lot if it isn't raining, though your lawn may well resemble a napalm attack, like mine did.
This kills weeds, and shit types of grass (apparently), you will be left with the good stuff.
