How to use

Directions for use

Step 1: Cut existing lawn down to expose soil of the area you wish to repair.  Make sure you remove any weeds in the area.

Step 2: Lightly rake the area to loosen the soil, optionally laying down a fertiliser such as Dynamic Lifter Organic Lawn Food to improve the soil around the desired area.

Step 3: Scatter the Yates Lawn Repair, with the first half of the product scattered in a north-south direction and the remaining half in an east-west direction.  Rake into the surface, in one direction only to ensure a more even result.

Step 4: Water the patch/new lawn regularly making sure the area is kept moist at all times. 

Also avoid traffic on the area until the lawn is well established.

Best sowing times: For best results sow in early autumn to allow development of a deep root system prior to first summer.  Sowing in spring is also an ideal time, though more watering may be required throughout the first summer.



  • Keep ALL traffic (including dogs) off the area until the lawn is well established
  • Keep the newly sown lawn damp at all times by watering regularly with a fine mist spray. May require watering several times a day in hot or windy conditions
  • Lawn should first be mown when it reaches 10cm in height and then gradually reduce to a minimum of 5cm.
  • To prevent staining, sweep any split product from driveways and paths back on the lawn before watering.
