How To Fix Dead Spots in the Lawn?

Oct 29

You can get patches of dead skin from many sources, including animal digging, grub injury, dog urine, and plain old heat and drought. Your yard will look worse. Are you tired of your yard having brown spots? For a green and seamless lawn, hire our professional yard clean-up Lynnwood wa services. 

In the cooler and damper conditions of the fall, grass seed germinates well. This allows young roots to get off to an excellent start in soil that is still warm enough for growth. Your yard will look lush and healthy if you take the time to revive it in October and September. This will make your neighbors ask for your lawn advice when spring comes around.

Here's how it works:

  1. Remove any matted, dead, or other debris. Direct contact with soil is the best way for grass to germinate and root.
  2. You can loosen the soil. You can scratch the soil or dig to loosen the top 2 to 3 inches. You can add some compost or other organic matter to the soil if it is very poor. Do not just sprinkle seed on top of the hard ground.
  3. Sprinkle grass seed on the soil. Use high-quality, climate-friendly seeds such as Greenview Fairway Formula Grass seeds. Lightly rub the seed in so that it's incorporated into the soil's top quarter-inch and not too close to the surface. For good contact between soil and seed, lightly tamp.
  4. Fertilize. Sprinkle a little lawn fertilizer that is specifically formulated for new grass to get your new growth started.
  5. Mulch and water

Cooper Landscape LLC Formula for Seeding Success is an additive to paper mulch that acts as a starter fertilizer. It acts as a mulcher and fertilizer at the same time. Once the grass seed germinates, the paper mulch will disintegrate on its own.

It doesn't matter what kind of seed you plant, it is important that the soil remains moist until the seed sprouts. The soil should not dry out after the seed has been removed. This will prevent seeds from germinating well.

Reduce watering to once a few days after grass reaches 2 inches in height. Start mowing the grass when it reaches 4 inches in height. Your patched area should be established after one season. You won't be capable of telling the difference after one season unless grubs and dogs decide to return.
