Anyone done this? Some paving slaps were left on the grass and now we've moved them are are two lovely big mud patches.

I have some miracle grow stuff in the shed, would this patch it up and how long would it take?

Anything else better?

We removed a wall last year and just threw down grass seed-it is lovely, puts rest of lawn to shame. Took about 8 weeks to be lovely.

Thanks. Maybe I should throw it all over the garden and brighten it all up! smile

Or just buy a roll of turf & patch it in.

Rake off any dead grass, 'rough up' the soil surface, and scatter some grass seed of a similar quality around. Don't feed it too soon, but Yes, present mild, damp conditions should be ideal for it. If you have birds or mice, maybe lay netting over seed so it doesn't get eaten; remove netting once seed has germinated.
