Don’t Forget These Essentials

  • Each jug and/or bag of Black Beauty® Patcher Lawn Bare Spot Repair contains a combination of:

  • Tall fescue, perennial ryegrass, and Kentucky bluegrass

  • 1 – 2 – 1

  • For cool-season lawns, the best time to apply grass seed is in fall (between mid-August to mid-October), or in spring (between mid-March to mid-May). For grass seed to germinate, soil temperatures must be at least 55°F. Best root growth occurs between 55° and 70°. If soil temperatures are at or above 75°, seedling root establishment will not occur.
  • 5+ hours of sunlight per day

  • 10 – 14 days

  • Yes, the mulch in Black Beauty® Patcher Lawn Bare Spot Repair will biodegrade into the soil.

  • Black Beauty Patcher can be applied with any of our soil amendments. We do not recommend applying it with any weed controls, or fertilizers. You must wait at least 30 days to seed after applying weed control. For a full list of wait times, visit this FAQ page.

    • After applying, water the bare spot gently allowing the mulch to absorb it. Avoid over-watering and pooling. Keep the area moist until the grass has germinated and grown to at least 2 inches.
    • A good rule of thumb for established lawns, is to give them one inch of water per week including rainfall. To avoid your lawn going dormant in the summer, you may need to increase your watering rate.
    • Begin mowing your new grass when the turf has reached a height of 3 – 4 inches.
    • Be careful not to scalp your lawn, as low mowing will stress the root system and encourage the growth of weeds. When mowing, only take off the top third of the grass blade.
  • Our recommendations for storing your grass seed: Place it in a cool dry place, off of the ground, out of direct sunlight, and keep it away from moisture. Under these conditions, grass seed will last at least two years.

  • Always read and follow the product label before use.

  • Urine Burn

    Small amounts of urine may produce a green up or fertilizer effect while larger amounts often result in lawn burn or dead patches. To help prevent urine damage, pour water on the area after the dog has gone to dilute the urine. For a quick fix, rake out the dead grass and apply Black Beauty® Patcher Lawn Bare Spot Repair.

  • Can new grass seed blend in with my existing lawn?

    Yes, Jonathan Green Black Beauty grass seed should blend in with most cool-season grass varieties. Jonathan Green grass seed is formulated to grow best in the northern half of the U.S. therefore we don’t recommend overseeding warm-season lawns with our seed if you want it to blend in nicely with your existing grass.


    When overseeding bare spots, we recommend two things: 

    • Put some seed around the surrounding area of the bare spot to aid in your grass looking more uniform and blended. Allow time for the new grass seed to blend in with your existing lawn.
    • Initially, it may look a little different if your lawn is originally seeded with a different type of grass seed. Over time however, it will most likely blend in and give your lawn a more uniform appearance.

How to Apply



Lightly rake over bare spots with a metal rake to remove dead grass and debris. Rake the soil to create a loosened seed bed.

Add Topsoil

If needed, add additional topsoil to fill in holes and level the ground.


Spread product

Shake the bag (or jug) prior to the application of this product. Spread the contents of Black Beauty® Patcher Bare Spot Repair evenly on the loosened soil. Rake lightly to achieve even coverage.



Water the bare spot gently after application, allowing the mulch to absorb it. Water the area daily for 1 to 2 weeks, then water once a week, or as needed when the mulch dries out. It is important to water the seedbed for sufficient grass seed germination and expansion of the mulch to provide soil coverage.


New grass should start to germinate in 14 days but may take during a colder spring season. Seed germinates once soil temperatures reach 55°F. Patcher mulch will eventually biodegrade into the soil.


Begin mowing the bare spot when the new grass has reached a height of 3 – 4 inches. Make sure the mower has sharp blades. Be careful not to scalp the lawn. Low mowing will stress the root system and encourage the growth of weeds.
