"A patch of dead grass, even a small one, in an otherwise acceptable lawn can be an eyesore and a weed magnet," says LSU AgCenter horticulturist Dr. Tom Koske. Use turfgrass to patch the lawn. It’s easy, immediate and permanent and checks soil erosion.
To repair a lawn with turfgrass sod, Koske says to follow eight steps.
"After you’re finished, you can enjoy your lawn without further worries about that patched area," Koske says, adding, "These simple steps will create a mature and complete lawn patch immediately – unlike attempts at patching with grass seed that most often require weed control and months to achieve even a marginally acceptable result."
