The Old Farmer's Almanac Lawn Repair is a Premium Grass Seed & Compost Blend made with a proprietary blend of high quality compost and patented Perennial Rye Grass Seed. Lawn Repair is perfect for a wide range of applications including starting new lawns, spot repairs in high traffic areas, and long term maintenance programs aimed at improving and thickening existing lawns, greens, playing fields, and turf grass.

Quality Compost: The Old Farmer's Almanac Lawn Repair's granulated compost, with soil ammendments, is dust and odor free and spreads easily. It stimulates microbial activity and boosts soil health. The compost provides a natural bed for seeds while delivering much needed nutrients to young, establishing plants.

Patented Spreading Seed: Lawn Repair's patented Perrenial Rye Grass Seed improves seeding results and density, and germinates in as few as 4 days. It is a very competitive cool-season grass that handles high traffic areas well, thrives in full sun and also adapts to partially shaded environments. This pack is guaranteed to be 100% free of weed seeds.

Nothing You Don’t Want: Lawn Repair is made of 80% compost, derived from leaf litter, and 20% grass seed. There are no bio-solids, manure or harsh chemicals so there are no unpleasant smells to worry about.

People & Pet Friendly: With no re-entry restrictions after application, The Old Farmer's Almanac is ideal for home use as well as use in public spaces like parks, playing fields, golf courses, municipal grounds, highways, and other corporate greens.

Coverage & Application: Use The Old Farmer’s Almanac Lawn Repair to fix bare patches in an otherwise healthy lawn; to thicken and improve lawns with thin, damaged grass; or to quickly seed an entire new section of ground where no grass currently exists. Typical application rates are listed below; but may be increased or decreased as needed:

  • Over-Seeding Thin Lawns:  1 Pound for Every 100 Square Feet
  • Repairing Bare Spots:  1 Pound for Every 50 Square Feet
  • Starting a New Lawn:  1 Pound for Every 20 Square Feet

Prepare the Soil: Prior to application, prepare the treatment area by raking or tilling to remove dead grass and loosen hard soil. If applying to bare ground ensure soil is loosened and free of debris to a depth of 1 to 2 inches.

Apply: Spread The Old Farmer’s Almanac Lawn Repair evenly across the treatment area. For best results apply when daytime temperatures are consistently between 60-80ºF.

Rake or Tamp: Once application is complete, gently rake or tamp down The Old Farmer’s Almanac Lawn Repair to ensure sufficient contact between seeds and soil.

Water: Lightly water immediately after application and keep the treatment area moist, but not damp, until seeds have sprouted, usually within 10 days of application. Keep seed beds moist, watering lightly on a daily basis if necessary, until new turf has reached 2 to 3 inches in height.

Grow & Mow: Refrain from mowing treated areas until new turf is well established. Once grass is established, provide approximately 1 inch of water per week (including rain) and mow regularly. Never remove more than 1/3 of the blade of grass when mowing.
