    • 1). Plant seeds such as ryegrass and fescue to encourage new growth to the area. Creeping grasses --- such as Bermuda grass --- normally outgrow scalping with the normal care.

    • 2). Water the seeds in as indicated for the specific type of grass.

    • 3). Cover the newly planted seeds with a thin layer of straw or soil to protect the seeds and old grass crowns from the sun.

    • 4). Care for the grass as normal, and wait until the grass reaches the normal grass height. Cut the grass to the desired height for your species for example, Bermuda grass thrives best between 1.5 and 2.5 inches, and tall fescues thrives best between 2.5 to 4 inches tall. Don't let the grass grow too tall or you may create a thicker thatch.
