The Q&A Archives: Bare Spots in Lawn

Question: My grass was burnt out, with all the recent rain
It has grown back but I still have some patches missing what can I do to fix it?

Answer: The easiest fix is to rake the bare areas and sprinkle grass seeds, then lightly cover the seeds with a little peat moss to both keep the seeds from drying out, and to protect them from hungry birds. Keep the seeded areas moist and the seeds will germinate in 7-10 days. In a few weeks you'll have no more bare spots. Enjoy your lawn!
