Answer: Hi Reannyn,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

If the damaged has done, depends on the type of grass in your lawn, you might be able to repair it.

For runner grass such as Buffalo and Kikuyu I would suggest to remove the thatch and loose up the soil, you can take some rooted cuttings to plant in the area and water in with some Dynamic Lifter Liquid which contains seaweed, blood&bone and fish meal to help developing new roots. You can see more of the product from the following link:

For upright grass, it is not self-repairable, I would suggest to oversow the whole lawn with upright seeds for an even look. Try Munns Arid Sun and Shade Lawn Seed Mix – it is great for full sun to 85% shade, only requires watering once a week when established and is self-repairing. You may read more about this product from the following link:

Prior to sowing, we strongly recommend mixing the lawn seeds with Munns Superstart Seed and Turf Starter Fertiliser. It promotes an even distribution of seeds and encourages faster germination and stronger seedling vigor. You may read more about this product from the following link:

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
