I'd first say to check your ball position to make sure it hasn't crept back in your stance. You want to meet the ball just before the bottom of the swing arc. That spot is generally more forward than golfers think. This is because we are rotating through impact, so our hips will be partially turned at impact, which moves the bottom of the swing arc forward slightly. This is usually about the front hip socket.
A tight lie does not mean anything different with my method. If you rotate "level", and don't flip through impact, you can pick the ball off of cement. The reason I say this is, if you think you need extra grass to help get the ball higher, it might be because there's still some "flip" in your swing through impact... or, you might not be staying "level" during the swing. Some golfers let their chest "drop" during the backswing, which can lead to the need to "raise" back up during the downswing or they'll hit "fat" shots. This can also (psychologically) give the golfer confidence when there is more grass, because they need that larger "margin of error" for their problem. I'm not sure this helped you much, but I thought was worth mentioning.
