Repair or renovation

Grass is a pretty resilient plant and often a lawn can recover from something as long as it is not a long period of disease or pest problem. But they can do a lot better when they get some care. A lawn that is properly fertilized, mowed and irrigated does better than one that is not, and it can recover from things better. Depending on the issue is what will guide you or a lawn service to choose between a repair approach or renovation.

Repairs - When you have smaller parts of the lawn that are damaged or not looking as good they need repair. Usually, this means less than 25% of the lawn is affected. It could include things like seeding or overseeding. Timing for repair work is important, it is best not to do it when it is too hot or too cold!
