The Q&A Archives: Lawn

Question: 1) The ground beneath my lawn is uneven. Any tricks to filling in holes and makeing the ground more level?
2) What's the secret to getting my lawn to grow tight and low like a golf course fairway? Thank you.

Answer: It will be relatively easy to fill in those low spots. Use sand or top soil and spread it over the low areas, adding only about an inch at a time and allowing the grass to grow up through it. Once it does, you can add another inch of topsoil or sand. Depending upon how low the spots are, you may only need to do this two or three times, being sure to allow the grass to grow up over the fill before spreading more topsoil. Eventually the lawn will be even and you'll have no low spots. Mowing low will encourage your turf to grow low and tight. Mow as often as necessary to keep it at about a half inch. Best wishes with your lawn!
