Yard tip: There are occasions when portions of the lawn may decline or die-out due to weather, disease or soil conditions. If the areas are small, they often can be overseeded with suitable variety or mix. Prior to seeding, the areas should be prepared. Dead grass and thatch can be removed with a rake. The soil surface can then be raked to allow for good soil to seed contact. A thin layer of soil or sand also may be put down to create a new seedbed. New commercial products that combine a fibrous mulch and grass seed can simplify the process.
