How can I get a full green lawn?


Help! My lawn is ugly! My lawn's soil is very hard. It has a lot of alkaline in it and it doesn't seem likes it's soaking up any water when I water it. There are large spots of dirt and spots of dry yellow grass. The majority of the grass is a dull green and very stiff. Since it rained, the dry spots are actually nice and green with crab grass. I don't remember the type of grass that I have, but I remember my dad digging slits all over the yard and planting pieces of grass with thick stems or roots on them. I hope this helps. Thanks in advance.
