How can I make my lawn look as good as the new turf?

8 years ago

Hi, I recently extended my lawn using the same turf as I used before (rolawn medallion turf) and I've suddenly realised how bad my existing lawn is. I only laid it 3 or 4 years ago and so I don't really want to dig it all up for the same thing to happen all over again. (Please see photo)

I rake the lawn yearly to remove the thatch, and I fertilised it in spring with a granular fertiliser/weed killer. I also aerated the lawn with a spiked cylinder at the start of the summer.

Please could you advise me on what I am doing wrong (or need to do as extra) because it looks a bit shocking in comparison with the new stuff.
