burnt and decayed lawn

I am 1 year into gardening now. I moved into property with newly laid lawn which I did not take care and the grass and weeds appeared and grew very tall then I trimmed them and started mowing the grass but it never recovered. since last year I have been using various seeds and lawn thickening formula etc but it never recovered to the extent when it was handed over to us.

I have tried scrapping the surface, aerating it but does not help.
latest I have tried 'after cut' formula and seeds have been eaten by birds...what to do?

I could post some pics and if someone could advise..

Photos may help. Did you over fertilize it or put too much weed and feed down?

Re: burnt and decayed lawn

Knowing your location would help. Your soil type is also necessary information.
