How can I revive a dead patch of grass?
First identify why it died. Some reasons might be drought, chemicals, end of grass life-expectancy, or objects lying on it are some reasons grass might die. Correct the problem and reseed. For a smaller patch, you can put a thin layer of peat moss on top of the seed to maintain moisture. Seed according to manufacturer instructions and make sure your seeded patch is well watered.
