Lawn recovery with seeds

Hi everyone, 

Thought I’d share my little lawn project from the last 4 weeks. Basically the kids dug a massive hole in the lawn and played in it all the time with their toy diggers. 😅

We are getting our house ready for sale so I fixed it up using a $6 box of all purpose lawn seed from Bunnings. I filled the hole in with some sand and topped it with some top soil and then just sprinkled over the seeds. 
The pics attached are exactly 4 weeks apart. The bare batch is now almost completely filled in (also due for a mow).

Hi @prettyliving


What a fantastic repair job on the lawn. That all-purpose lawn seed blends in perfectly with your existing turf. I was expecting the seeds to take much longer, it's amazing how fast it grows in just four weeks.


Thanks for sharing that lawn recovery project.




See something interesting? Give it the thumbs up!
