Gents after some advice on lawn fertilizer, my lawns are starting to look great but still a little patchy in areas, my little experience with fertilizer generally just makes the grass greener rather than make the grass grow over a wider area effectively fixing the patchy areas.

Can anyone suggest a fertilizer to fix the patchy areas I have?

Cheers

For bare patches I just get a rake and scarify it a bit, get a bag of sandy loam and cover it with that and fertilise/water regularly, if you get the soil right the grass will spread quickly.

Aerate it mate.
I do it every 3-4 years and it takes off again.
That ground looks pretty hard.

How often are you watering and for how long? How hard is the soil.... if you got the garden fork out, how much effort would it take to push it in?

Regular mowing is a great start in getting the plant to run and grow sideways rather than up... looks like it could do with a nice top dressing and a feed.

Dont get something with a real high nitrogen content, you dont really need to big surge of growth that will need mowing nearly every day

I agree core the lawn. Try a bit of gypsum to break down the clay too. I see some shade there, do you have tree roots that are under the lawn drawing moisture?

Regular mowing is a great start in getting the plant to run and grow sideways rather than up... looks like it could do with a nice top dressing and a feed. I Mow every second Sunday.

All of the above.

Core to aerate, top dress, some Lawn Porn Launch ( or similar ) and a good feed of slow release fertilizer.
