Large lawn repair advice

We have a large scale lawn to repair after some cattle got in over it during the winter.  It has all been poached with their feet.  I have sprayed the area off.  We are going to reseed the entire lot.  Total area is 1500sqm, access is good however there are narrow parts that larger machinery wont get in to - at the side of the house/ around patio.


I am looking for ideas on how we can deal with this  ie to get to a decent tilth fit for reseeding and minimise the manual graft..

    Repairing what was there rather than killing it all off would have been better. However you now need to lift all the dead vegetation and remove from site. Rotivate, level, pretreatment for seeding,brill, keep watered then deal with weeds correctly as therearr plenty of weed seeds at this time of year. Good luck!

    • Thank you Ian. 


      I appreciate that that it would have been easier to top dress/ fill the holes however this is not what the customer wanted. They are taking the opportunity to start again. 


      I understand the process so what I am actually looking for is the easy technique in terms of equipment etc. Do we actually need to remove the killed off grass or would it be sufficient enough to rotovate straight off. For example, I have a 23hp compact tractor as well as a 120hp tractor, both with pto’s.

    Over thirty years ago I worked for a building contractor renovating the stables at Worcester Racecourse, after every race meeting the gang of race course maintenance guys filled every hoof mark as required by hand, walking behind a tractor and trailer loaded with top dressing to refill the buckets they carried.

    Presumably it is still done the same way?
