Options to Repair a Thin Lawn

Published on: January 11, 2017

Is your grass in your lawn thinning to the point where you can see between the blades? There are many different reasons your lawn can become sparse, as well as many different solutions. Older grass, diluted nutrients in the soil, weeds and poor irrigation can all lead to a thin lawn. If you want to regain a thick, lush lawn, here are some options to consider.

  • Fertilizer. In some cases, you may just need to feed your lawn to plump it up. Fertilizer can give your lawn the nutrients it needs to thrive. However, not all fertilizers are the same. Make sure you consult your landscaper to determine which would best benefit your lawn.
  • Irrigation. Simply not getting enough water or even getting too much can harm the health of your lawn. Changing your irrigation schedule can make a difference and help cure a thinning lawn.
  • Overseeding. Adding a top dressing or overseeding can do wonders for an unhealthy lawn. This can bring it back to its lush state and also help choke out weeds with excessive grass growth.
  • Sod. If feeding, watering or seeding your lawn have not worked to obtain a lush yard, it may be time to consider new sod. Starting with a healthy, new lawn through sod installation can save you the time and trouble of trying to restore your old grass.

Bringing an old, thin lawn back to life is not always easy. Consult your local landscaper to get the expert help you need to make your lawn look fresh and new again. They can offer the best solutions for getting the green, lush grass you desire.
