Three Types of Repairs to Keep Your Lawn Healthy

Three Types of Repairs to Keep Your Lawn Healthy

Even the healthiest of lawns require regular maintenance. Here are three common repairs that your outdoor space might require

Materials Needed:

  • For replacing turf:
  • half moon cutter
  • turfing iron or spade
  • gardening fork
  • rake
  • For reseeding grass:
  • gardening fork
  • half moon cutter or spade
  • rake
  • top-dressing
  • lawn seed
  • watering can or gardening hose
  • garden netting
  • For repairing patches:
  • half moon cutter or spade
  • rake
  • shade-tolerant seed mix
  • watering can or gardening hose

Replacing a Square of Turf

When replacing a damaged patch of grass, it is a good idea to try to identify the underlying cause so that you can try to prevent it from occurring again. For example, if the turf has become worn from being regularly walked on, it might be worth replacing it with a path or inserting stepping stones. The best time to repair damaged turf is fall or spring. Cut out the piece of damaged turf using a half moon cutter, then use a turfing iron or spade to cut underneath, severing the roots, at a depth of about 1-1/2 to 2 inches (4 to 5 cm). Use a fork to dig over the bottom of the hole. Cut a new piece of turf from another area with similar grasses in it, and tamp it down with the back of a rake. Water well.

Reseeding a Patch of Grass

The best time to reseed patches in the lawn is in spring or fall. Fork over any bare areas of soil, and then rake them level with the existing lawn. If the level is lower, build them up with top-dressing. Sprinkle grass seed at the recommended rate, and then rake it in gently. Try to choose a seed mix that is suitable for your conditions. The grass might have suffered in the first place if the wrong mix was used; there are seed mixes for shady spots, high impact areas, and damp soils, so make sure you choose one that matches your conditions. Keep the areas well watered during germination, and use netting to protect them from falling leaves and to deter birds.

Repairing Patches

Lawns can often start to look patchy and die back when they are growing in the shade. This frequently occurs under trees, near the edges of raised beds, or where edging material overshadows the turf. These areas will need regular repairs to keep them looking good. Remove the damaged sections of the lawn using a half moon cutter or spade, and rake the area using top-dressing to adjust the level. Then sow a seed mix containing shade-tolerant species, and water in well. Alternatively, repair the lawn using patches of turf from other areas of the lawn. Identify shady areas of the lawn that are already growing well, remove small sections of it, and use these to patch up the damaged area.

Landscaping refers to any activity that modifies the visible features of an area of land, including:
  1. living elements, such as flora or fauna; or what is commonly referred to as gardening, the art and craft of growing plants with a goal of creating a beautiful environment within the landscape.
  2. natural elements such as landforms, terrain shape and elevation, or bodies of water;
  3. human elements such as structures, buildings, fences or other material objects created and/or installed by humans; and
  4. abstract elements such as the weather and lighting conditions.

Interior Design

Interior design describes a group of various yet related projects that involve turning an interior space into an "effective setting for the range of human activities" that are to take place there. An interior designer is someone who conducts such projects. Interior design is a multifaceted profession that includes conceptual development, liaising with the stakeholders of a project and the management and execution of the design.
Interior design as carried out in sri lanka is an almost entirely different practice to that carried out in the sri lanka. In this passage,relates mainly to the sri lanka.
