There have been a few questions about lawns so rather than answer them all individually here are my top tips - a key problem is soil compaction, this causes waterlogging in flat/low-lying areas and also restricts root growth in others. So in spring use a special tine tool which takes out little plugs of soil or go over the lawn with a fork to aerate it, (you can also buy slip on, spiked shoes to walk over the grass, which could be fun!) Give the lawn a good rake to beforehand to get rid of any dead matter and moss, and apply a good lawn feed. If patches are worn, seed the area mixing the seed with a bit sand and topsoil and sprinkle over the affected patch.
Topdressing is a way of aiding drainage and can be done in autumn too - you can buy a pre-mixed, sand-based topsoil that you apply to the lawn and brush in with a broom (make sure the grasses is dry beforehand though). If you have dips you can also fill them in in this way, building up the mix to the right level and adding some grass seed to the final application.
Moss is a problem for a lot of people and rather than apply a moss killer I favour getting handy with a rake, or hiring a special mower-like machine that rakes out the moss for you.
I hope that helps.
