What is the best treatment to 'feed and weed' a lawn. I used to use a company called Green Thumb but, unfortunately I can no longer afford them and I have to do it myself. The lawn is quite large circa 1/4 acre. Any advice folks?

Funny, I just binned Green Thumb this week after a couple of years. Nothing wrong with their treatment's, just that as soon as we get a few weeks of sun 50% of my lawns just die, so it seemed a bit pointless.
I'll be back to using 4 in 1, either Evergreen, or I have found that Wilkinsons have a good selection of stuff. I also put down liquid feed and have an electric scarifier, that comes out once a year. For a large area, I would suggest a push along spreader to ensure even coverage.

One of the most important things for a good lawn, is to keep it well aired underneath, hollow tine it every year if you can manage to.
