How to repair patches in your lawn

Bare patches in the lawn look unsightly and are caused by damage, pets, or general wear and tear.

They can easily be repaired using Aftercut Patch Fix, which is a blend of grass seed, feed and seeding soil. This is best done in the spring or autumn months.

Follow the steps below to easily repair bare patches. 

Step 1

Remove weeds, moss and debris.

Loosen the bare soil surface with a rake, breaking up any large lumps or compacted soil until it has a fine crumbly texture. You may need to add some Westland Top Soil or Westland Horticultural Sand if your soil is very clay-like.

Water thoroughly.
