When you're having building work done at your home, your lawn can become damaged. Whether workmen drive their vehicles on the lawn to access necessary areas, or building materials like bricks or sand are left on your lawn for a long time, the damage can be pretty severe. Of course, when you're going to the effort of having work done on your home, the last thing you want is for your garden to end up looking significantly worse because of it! Today we're going to look at some of the different ways you can repair a lawn after building work.
Topsoil & re-seed damaged grass
If the damage isn't too extensive then you might be able to salvage it! If the top layer of grass has died, or if there's a deep imprint in your lawn (caused by tyre tracks, for example), we'd recommend removing the top layer and adding fresh topsoil to level the ground out. Once the grass is back to its usual level, you can sprinkle a healthy dose of grass seed onto the soil and let your lawn re-establish itself over time. Make sure you speak to a professional to choose grass seed that will match your existing lawn perfectly.
Pros of this method:
- This method is cost-effective, you only need to purchase topsoil and seed
- It doesn't take long to do & can fix the problem in a matter of weeks
Remove damaged grass and re-turf
When you're dealing with significant damage to your lawn, fixing the problem might be off the table. If your garden has been well and truly mashed up by the wheels of construction vehicles, you might have to consider the idea of a re-turf. Don't worry, re-turfing your lawn is easy when you choose a professional team, like the technicians here at Lawn and Weed Expert! We can source the turf, deliver it to your house & install it - all while you put your feet up inside your newly renovated home.
Pros of this method:
- You get a brand new, pristine lawn to match your new house renovations
- Once installed, your lawn will look great for years to come
- Minimal hassle, we'll do all the work for you!

Replace it with something new!
While it's unlikely that your lawn will be completely destroyed after building work - it does occasionally happen! At this point, you might consider replacing your lawn completely with something new. If having your lawn re-turfed doesn't appeal, why not try something like composite decking or porcelain paving instead? These low-maintenance options are great for giving your garden a modern feel!
