    My son was helping me yesterday and his wheels on the 21" fell into a large edge and he scalped a large section of a new customers lawn. The client wasn't upset but is there a way to get it back to normal faster? I thought maybe a small amount of compost to shade the turf and add nutrients. It's bermuda and in full sun. Any thoughts?

    shade the turf?

    just fix the hole so it wont get scalped again and it will fix itself in several weeks!

    Bermuda will fix itself. Scalping it probably makes it stronger.......
