Brown and bare spots of lawn can be brought back to life easily.
Step 1: Gather seed, fertilizer, and compost to bring dead patches back to life. Patches of your lawn can turn brown for various reasons. They are most often caused by too much traffic, the roots compacting, too much fertilizer, not enough water or insects and animals that dig up the lawn. Any lawn can have brown or bare spots
Step 2: Prepare a large patch of seed mix for multiple problem spots If there are numerous areas on your lawn that need attention, mix a large batch of compost, seed and fertilizer in a bucket. This will save time. Be sure to follow step #3 to prepare the soil and step #5 after the mixture has been applied. Mix a large batch for a troubled lawn.
Step 3: Prepare the trouble spot Use a stiff rake to roughen up the surface of the lawn. Use a hand cultivator to loosen the top few inches of soil. Loosen the soil with a hand cultivator.
Step 4: Apply fertilizer, seed and compost Following the manufacturer's directions for new seeding, lightly sprinkle fertilizer on the area and work it into the soil with the cultivator. Sprinkle the new grass seed as you would sugar on pancakes. Cover the seed with compost, and step on the patch to set the seed. Sprinkle the new seed as you would sugar on pancakes.
