Top Lawn Repair related questions

Lawn repair and restoration requires patience, time, and skills to get it all done correctly. Instead of devoting your whole weekend doing this task, you can hire our qualified lawn repair expert to save you from all the hassle. Pros in the job, they can ensure a safe and quality repair work instead of doing it yourself. Plus, they can also do everything in a shorter time frame.

It's best to book a repair service either during autumn or early spring, ideally when the grasses are still actively blooming. Summer's scorching temperature might dry out your soil and field, while winter frost might freeze the entire lawn. Since autumn and spring are neither too hot nor too cold, and most especially not damp, your soil and grasses are likely to recover and grow better. 

Not necessarily. If you don't have any materials ready, you can hire a Tasker who can bring their lawn repair supplies. The tools required will depend on the specific services needed. Although usually, your Tasker may need seed and compost spreaders, hose, lawn rakes, lawn coring aerators, and scarifiers. You can also request for your Tasker to drop by the local garden centre to pick up grass seeds, treatments, and grass fertilizers if needed.

The repair process is usually completed within a day for minor patches and a few more days for bigger lawns. Meanwhile, the length of their recovery will depend on several factors: the severity of the turf damage, the current season, the type of grass seeds used, and your lawn care after repair. The grass seeds may germinate for about 2-3 weeks during the ideal months, and longer for off-seasons. 
If you have no time to maintain your lawn after the repair, you can book our Taskers for regular lawn care services. We can help ensure that your grasses are at their recommended height level, and also keep the edges clean and levelled. You can also hire our Taskers to remove and prevent pesky weeds from growing back again. You can even book mulching and composting services, although we only recommend booking this service only once or twice a year.

Whenever you need a pair of extra hands maintaining your garden, you can also turn to Airtasker for help. Basic gardening tasks include pruning and hedge trimming to keep your garden neat and tidy. Our Taskers can even help you with a general garden tidy up to get rid of any garden rubbish. Apart from garden maintenance, we can also assist with planting, furniture installation, as well as plant delivery.

What do lawn repair services include?

Our lawn repair experts restore exhausting parts of lawns that have gone bald or thin due to extreme conditions or unexpected lawn diseases. They can get to the root source of the problem, remove any dead grass, moss, or weeds, and add nutrients to bring your soil and turf back to life. Almost any damaged lawn is repairable, but if more than half of your lawn area is already polluted with weeds or moss, then laying new turf is usually more practical and reasonable than repairing. Here's how our lawn repair typically works:

Scarifying your lawn

One of the most effective ways to start a lawn repair is through scarification. Ideally, with a mechanical lawn scarifier, your lawn expert removes most of the surface thatch or the layer of dead grass and moss that have accumulated over the years. It aims to strip off your lawn and open up more space so the soil can easily absorb the nutrients. Plus, it can help solve the regular thinning of your turf and encourage healthier grass growth in the future. 

Aerating your lawn

Once freed from the dead grass clippings and moss, the soil must be ready for lawn aeration. The idea is to pierce small holes and allow the soil to absorb air, nutrients, and water. Sounds easier than done, but having an expert do core aeration with a lawn aerator is safer and more reliable. Our Tasker can quickly and efficiently remove the cores and relieve your dried and compacted soil.

Repairing a lawn with grass seed

Grass seeding is perhaps the most crucial element of lawn restoration. With so many types of seeds available, it's essential to choose the most appropriate ones that fit your location, soil type, and climate condition. When in doubt, our Taskers are more than happy to help you find grass seeds for your lawn. After scarification and aeration, our Tasker proceeds with spreading out the seeds generously across the delicate areas of your yard to cover the patches effectively.

Final top dressing 

The service usually concludes by covering the reseeded surfaces with a thin layer of topsoil or garden fabric. Not only does it create a smooth finish, but it can also help the seeds to germinate and speed up their growth. It also conceals cracks and holes from scarification and aeration and improves drainage. Now, you can start watering your turf and wait at least two weeks to see the results.
