I have several dead spots in my lawn. How do I go about fixing them?
Although late summer / early fall seeding is best, we can’t wait for then! So you’ll need to dormant or spring seed (do it now or in a few weeks). Be sure to rake out all the dead debris from the areas, then seed those areas with your grass seed (chose a seed mix or blend that matches or is compatible to your existing lawn). Be sure to throw some seed into the surrounding grass as well. Then put down either a starter fertilizer, or if a pre emergent herbicide is needed, be sure to use that is specially formulated for newly seeded lawns. All other pre emergent herbicides will stop grass seed from growing. Be sure to water the seed / new grass as needed thru the spring season and into the summer as well. By the way, for the turf type tall fescue lawns, we now have the NEW TLC Fescue Blend, with Titan Limited, Titan Rx and Rendition Rx – all rhizoming tall fescues!
