The lawn is uneven because of uneven nutrient levels. It needs feeding. On a big lawn yuou can use farm fertilizers which are cheaper. Use Urea, sulphate of ammonia or Net Nitrate to give it a boost but be careful not to overdo it as it will result in a lot of mowing.

Apply about 30gms per square metre, using fertilizer distributor, that’s almost three bags to an acre, or 4,000 square metres.
