Verdun..........you sounded pretty definite so no doubt you are right about the grass not growing back (which is why I was careful to put "I think" ).
I'm curious tho as to why it wouldn't..........would not the surrounding grass eventually grow over the bare patch ? Or do you simply mean that it would not regenerate quickly enough for the lawn to look good ? My "lawn" is far from perfect and there are Rooks and Blackbirds poking about in it but I don't have bald patches. That could easily be down to the fact that altho I do have lots of grass in it, I also have clover, buttercups, dandelions but it always looks green. However, as the grass does quickly colonise the borders if not edged regularly, I'd assumed it would act in a similar manner within the lawn. I can see if you had so many small holes you may well need to fill those in to allow regeneration. I also appreciate that many people work hard to obtain the perfect lawn and take great pride in it.
I fear I am probably missing the point but are you advocating the use of Nematodes solely from an aesthetic viewpoint or do the leatherjackets and those who feed on them permanently damage a lawn?
Not wanting to be argumentative ( fat Éclair offered ) but just wondering ?
