The Q&A Archives: patches in my yard

Question: I have patches in my yard .. like ruts.. cant explain it. hopefully you know what i mean.. what should i do.. thanks

Answer: Sounds like the freeze and thaw cycle has caused the fissures and cracks and low spots in the soil. I'd dig the area lightly, add some topsoil and then overseed with fresh grass seed. There's not much you can do about winter damage such as this other than to repair it with topsoil and overseed the area. Good luck with your lawn!
