Repairing Bare Spots in Your Lawn With Sod
BLACK+DECKER B+D Contributor 126 Projects
Bare spots are not only unsightly, they can spread if the primary cause is left untreated. Patching bare spots works best if you do it at the beginning of new lawn growth. Repair bare spots in the late summer for cool-season grasses, and in late spring for warm-season species. Either way, always water well whether you’re planting sod or seed. Every day for a week is a good baseline (if there has been no rain) and continue watering until you’re sure the patch is completely established.
