A few weeks ago, we showed you the yard of a client who accidentally killed a patch of grass after mixing up his lawn chemicals. The Turf Care repaired the dead patch with a seed slicer which cuts through the soil and drops seeds into the furrows created by the blades. The process ensures that the seeds are placed directly in contact with the soil and is a more reliable method than spreading seeds onto the lawn.
