How To Repair Patches
To repair a patch in your lawn remove the dead grass and loosen the soil with a garden rake. Apply 3mm of Patch Magic over bare patches, or 1.5mm over thin areas of grass. Water in until it turns dark brown and begins to expand. The unique compressed coir material absorbs water like a sponge, expanding instantly and changing colour to show it is surrounding each seed in a dark, moist, protective layer. It continues to care for the seeds, providing them with nutrients and holding water right next to the seed. This improves establishment offering a patching mix that really works.
As a result, Miracle-Gro® Patch Magic® promises 50% thicker grass with just half the water. Best of all, the protective coir layer changes colour when it dries out so you know exactly when the Patch Magic® grass seedlings needs more water.
