Repairing the lawn

bare patches seeded with grass seed

bare patches seeded with grass seed

I have noticed the lawns are looking a little threadbare, worse still, large and growing bare patches.

It has been wet since last weekend when I was last in the garden. Not as cold as it has been, though cooler than the weekend. Maybe it is a myth, but it is rumoured it will be approaching 20 C come the weekend. A marked contrast to a week ago when it was snowing.

Ideal conditions for sowing some grass seed.

I spiked the ground with a fork to loosen the surface soil, sprinkled compost over the bare patches, then sowed grass seed.

I finished an hour or so later when I ran out of time, energy and grass seed.

My friends the robin and blackbird were there to keep me company.
