I recently bought and moved into a house in Newcastle. A month ago the lawn was fantastic thick and green. It appears to be dying off slowly and the soil underneath is disappearing. I have used a powder insecticide and watered it in but it hasn't worked. There's also small dirt piles in the lawn and birds. What can I do?
