How to Repair Grass

It is possible to repair grass without having to remove it and planting new grass. We are able to repair grass areas through a mixture of services ranging from aerating, pest spraying, weeds spraying, fertilizer, composting, top dressing, and where needed water drainage.

If a patch of grass has completely died and you want to replace it, you can however, follow the steps below. If you need help, simply call us as the experts to help repair grass areas professionally.

Step One

Remove the dead grass with the shovel, and if there are weeds, make sure you get the roots. Now trim the area where you have removed the grass to ensure that the edge is straight.

Step Two

Fill the area with top dressing until the new level is on the same height as the old level.

Step Three

Plant the seeds or the plugs. Spread a thin layer of top dressing by raking the area. Don’t bury the seeds. You should spread them evenly. Once you have covered the area with top soil press down on the soil, but don’t press too hard.

Step Four

Apply a bit of fertilizer and make sure it is has the correct ratio for Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium. As an alternative, simply get us to do it for you to ensure that the mixture is perfect.

Step Five

Keep the area moist by means of a spray several times a day. Once the seeds have sprouted, increase the water amount, but spray less than before. After two weeks you can reduce the level of water and frequency to normal. It is important to note that wet and moist are not the same. You don’t want to over water, simply keep moist.

Step Six

Don’t walk on the area where you repaired for a few weeks.

Finally, you can also get us to help repair grass spots. Instead of having to struggle with keeping the fertilizer balance correct, ensuring enough moist and more, you can rely on the experts to do the job. Contact us for a quote and assistance today.
