Steps for Repair
Bare spots and bald patches are ideal for weed growth, thus weeds will pop up if you don’t act quickly. Spring’s cool, wet weather is conducive to growing many types of turf grass.
Start by digging up the damaged section, plus 6 inches of surrounding, healthy lawn, cutting about 2 inches deep.
Then level the soil and add a small amount of soil amendment, such as a plant-based compost, and starter fertilizer. If you’re using seed, cover it lightly with straw and keep the ground moist until germination.
For sod, which is about 10 times more expensive than seed but tends to work better, cut a section to fit, press it into place, and water frequently until it takes root.
