Below are the different ways of repairing your lawn.

How to Repair a Lawn

Fill Bare and Bald Spots

It would help if you filled bare spots on your lawn with high-quality seeds. After filling the spots, you need to water the sections and take good care of the spots to prevent the seeds from drying out. Before filling the bald spots, it would be best if you rake the ground and loosen the soil.

Adequate and Proper Watering

For the newly seeded spots to grow into lush grass, it is important to water lightly. After the grass seedlings develop, start filling in, and gradually increase the amount of water to keep the topsoil moist.

After the grass attains the mowing height, it is best to start watering deeply to encourage the roots to grow deeper. Therefore, you need to carry out extensive soaking of your lawn to ensure water gets deep into the root system. As a result, the roots become strong, and your lawn becomes drought resistant.

Feed Your Lawn

The young grass and existing ones need nutrients to grow healthy and thick. After filling the bare spots, you need to feed your lawn. When you feed your lawn, you encourage growth of grass that forces out weeds and withstands heat and drought.

Kill Weeds and Pests

While seedlings on bare spots on your lawn are growing, pests and weeds will try to invade. It would be best if you undertook different mechanisms to control pests and weeds. Before you use any products, it is important to find out whether they are detrimental to new grass.
