Talkback: How to repair a lawn patch

very informative re creating and maintaining a good lawn. It seems to be an ongoing battle with my front lawn, which is in shade during the afternoon - however, I will try seed for shady lawns. Also, I have a couple of patches of bare earth left after killing moss, scarifying and sowing seed (lawn looking pretty good) - and I shall try the tip of placing polythene over the grass seed on the remaining patches (which have not germinated). Thanks for the tip.


  • at 1st visit ,could not set up my own reference page.
    where is this info found a link would be usefull.
  • Even though the polythene causes moisture to help the seed germinate, does the area still need some occasional watering?
  • after repairing bare patches on my lawn with seed how long before I can mow lawn?
  • I did this and usd adans tip and covered with polythene. I now have a scorched brown unsightly mess on my laen, where the sun has burn't the grass. Take care with this.

  • My lawn is in real bad shape, muddy and bare patches from the kids playing football. It's a big lawn about 60 ft long and 15ft wide. How am I going to get this back to a beautiful green lawn.

    Forget about grass -go for the long term solution and lay a few paving slabs/stepping stones
