My friends lawn was badly damaged yesterday by a tractor driving over it. The ground is very soft and It has left several deep ridges and mucked up areas where the tyres appear to have spun. What if anything can be done to salvage this?

When a tractor passes over soft ground, it pushes up most of waht it displaces and this can be shovelled back into the ruts and the raised ground pushed back down with the foot.

If there is still a shortfall in level, this canb brought up with a few wheel barrows of topsoil. Firm the ground or allow it to settle over a few months and sow grass seed over the bare soil.
