Lawns : Neglected Lawns
See more questions on Neglected Lawns
In recent times, I have only done the basics for my lawn so it’s long overdue some attention.
It’s a little bit patchy in places and I have some clover type weeds.
I believe my Soil is Sand type and I will get a PH test soon.
Could you help advice the order of doing things:
Weeds, aerating scarifying and top dressing?
Depending on the pH test would I need to include Sulphur etc. into that list?

Weeds are best controlled April to September.
Aerating, scarifying and top-dressing are marginal ... feeding in April and repeat at 8 weeks is usually enough. Autumn feed if you like, it can be a boost.
Grass grows at a wide range of pH, but sulphur can be used for moss control in October to March.
