As soon as you know you have to move out it’s time to act. Here are the simple steps to help repair a lawn patch:
Using a small garden fork or metal rake, gently cultivate the soil in the bare patch to create a nice soft crumbly surface.
If the bare patch is also lower than the surrounding soil, it will help to fill the spot with a bag of lawn top dressing. Holes or divots in the lawn can really stand out so it’s worthwhile filling them up and creating a more level surface.
Scatter some Munns Professional Quick Fix Premium Seed Blend over the patch and then gently rake into the surface. Munns Professional Quick Fix seed is coated with an advanced germination booster to provide germination within 5-7 days (depending on soil temperature and moisture).
Gently water the patch and keep the top centimetre of soil consistently moist while the new grass seedlings establish.
Once the new grass seedlings are 5 - 6 cm high they can be mown, the aim being to cut just the top 2 cm off the top of the leaves.
These new grass seedlings will help to fill and repair the bare patch.
