Fixing Bare Patches in the Lawn
I have quite a few bare spots in my lawn. What is the best way to get grass growing in these areas again?
Start by raking away any dead grass. Then roughen the soil surface. I like to use a seed-soil mix to fill these spots. Mix a handful of grass seed into a bucket of topsoil. Spread this over the prepared areas. The seeded spots can be mulched or left alone. The key to success is keeping the soil moist. Water often, keeping the soil moist, until the grass fills in these areas. Mulching helps hold moisture and reduce frequency of watering. Commercial grass patch kits are available. These products contain, seed and mulch in one. Prepare the soil and follow label directions when using these products.
