How to repair burnt lawns

If your lawn is burnt like mine is, late summer or early fall is the best time to repair it.  MARK CULLEN, a Canadian garden expert, has the following advice on the best way to make those repairs:

  • Spread Mark’s Choice Lawn Soil (found at Home Hardware stores) over the area you wish to re-seed, 2 cm. thick
  • Rake smooth
  • Broadcast Golfgreen lawn seed [Canadian for our lawns: 0% weed seeds] by hand
  • Rake smooth to incorporate into the soil.
  • Step on it or roll it with a roller 1/3 full of water. 
  • Water it every day that you do not receive any rain until established.  Do NOT let the seedlings dry out!  It is best to water first thing in the morning or in the evening.

 

I am willing to give his advice a try since my lawn looks terrible in its burnt condition…
