How do I repair a damaged patch of turf?

If you do happen to damage a patch of your new lawn, follow this simple process to repair it:

  • Cut out the damaged piece of turf in a square, using a sharp spade or edging iron.
  • Loosen the soil beneath with a fork or trowel.
  • Cut a new section of identical turf to the same size as the square you cut out.
  • Carefully lay the new piece of turf into the patch and lightly press it down.
  • Brush a sandy top-dressing into the gaps around the edge of the repair.
  • Water in using a watering can fitted with a fine rose.
