I have recently had turf laid ( now due for its first cut ) and earlier this week I sprayed weedkiller on weeds on the driveway that abuts the lawn - now notice a small patch of grass at the lawn edge has turned brown.
Would grass seed be the solution or just leave it and see what happens?
Grateful of any help
No, don't reseed just yet.....water that area really well
You don't say what type of weedkiller.......it may also kill any reseeded grass. Live with it for few weeks then reseed in September if necessary
....Or you may find the adjoining grass will grow into it.... if you see that happening, chances are the weedkiller has lost its effectiveness... sprinkle a little fresh topsoil on top and water.
Many thanks both.
Weedkiller lasts about 3 months so after that you should be OK to dig up that bit of grass and then next time you cut the grass leave some cuttings on the bald patch, with luck they will drop some seeds and it will reseed itself with the matching grass.
It was Roundup weedkiller - if that makes a difference?
Right, that will kill the grass totally in that area. Wait a couple of weeks for grass to die off then rake soil and reseed. Not the ideal time but, kept moist, will germinate fast.
