How to repair your lawn patches

  1. Remove all dead grass, weeds and their roots from the patch. Lightly rake the bare soil, breaking up any hard lumps or compacted soil surfaces
  2. Apply Gro-Sure® Smart Patch Repair to the patch with the built-in spreader up to a 2mm depth
  3. Water with a fine spray to moisten the mixture and activate the seed
  4. You can apply slightly less when covering thin grass rather than a bare patch

Aftercare: You can mow the patch for the first time when the grass is 5-8cm (2-3”) high. Do not remove more than 1/3 of the grass leaf at any one time. Feed your lawn after the first 2 cuts.

When to Use Smart Patch Repair on your lawn
