So you’ve got a bare area in your lawn and you’re thinking of revitalising it with lawn seed?
What you need to find out before doing anything is why the bare area happened in the first place. Otherwise chances are the problem will simply recur.
Reasons the lawn may be bare are:
– The lawn doesn’t get enough sun.
– The lawn doesn’t get enough water.
– There are lawn beetle in it.
So before doing anything first work out what the problem is.
And then it’s to the solution. Obviously ‘lawn seed’ is not the way to fix any of the problems above.
That said I have never seen lawn seed work as a successful solution in any setting. It’s partly because the new ‘lawn’ is always sparse and partly because it rarely gets watered enough to sustain it.
New roll on lawn is always a better option, but only if it gets watered and is laid with adequate sun.
