    So I get home tonight and a truck backed over my curb on the corner of my lot and left deep divets in my front lawn. Needless to say I'm quite pissed. Looks like he just missed driving over 2 of my sprinkler heads too! Whats the best way to repair these? Fill in the tracks with dirt and hope the grass goes in? Should I try and cut the sod that's been pushed down and lift it up then fill in soil underneath it?

    If you have Bermuda grass I beleive you can also use sand. If the grass is established where you can't pull it up you can put a little sand on it. Then wait a week and put little more and do this till its all even. I had to do this because some one ran off the driveway and made a hole in my yard. You can't even tell now where it was.

    I had a tree crew come in my yard last year after a long period of rain. The tire tracks were wide and deep. I filled the depressions in with top soil, leveled it off and and threw grass seed down. I used some starter ferterlizer too. It looks great now. I seeded a few feet outside the damaged area just so the new grass transitioned well with my old grass. Grass should come up within 7 to 10 days.

    Its st. augustine grass and the tracks are rather deep. I'm gonna go pick up some soil today and try and repair it tonight afterwork.
