Quickly Repair a Small Patch of Lawn
To repair a small section of damaged lawn, cut out a section 1 or 2 feet (30 to 60 cm) square with the bare spot in one corner. Cut the roots with a spade, lift out the piece with shovel and rotate it so the spot is in the opposite corner. Step on the patch to firmly put the roots in place. Water until new grass fills the damaged section.
