HI, We turfed our lawn about 2 years ago now but we have having issues with big patches on the lawn this started after the first year. We have four cats so were worried that the cats were peeing on the lawn would cause this issue. We put some sensors on the side of the lawn which seems to have kept the cats off. We then tried seeding the areas but this did not work. We replaced the patches by removing some of the old turf and replacing with new turf but the same things has happened. it seems like the area is dead and nothing wants to grow there. We tried reseeding again this year using decent seed and watered regular but it still does not seem to be taking. Neither my husband or myself are really gardeners but we we have been watering the garden and looking after this the best we can. Nothing seems to work. We have even toyed with the idea of having artificial lawn but we are not sure how this looks after a period of a few years (fading etc) and how easy this is to do.
Any suggestions on why these areas aren't growing would be helpful, it's such a shame as the rest of the lawn looks great but there are quire a few patches so when we mow the lawn it looks awful. Thanks in advance.

I am aware some seeds do no germinate but although we water them etc and we do prepare the soil beneath it nothing seems to grow.

Hiya @Poppet76 At this time of year - and especially after a wet autumn the problem of leatherjackets can infest our lovely well kept lawns. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=651 This link might be a help to you - hope so:)
The very thought of putting plastic grass down makes me shudder. The joy of gardening is learning - it`s not about perfection, just a lovely interesting challenge. Enjoy it (y)
