How to repair an over cut lawn?

I have a friend that has mowed their lawn too short, and in this heat it is burning off. What can be used to repair the lawn to its green healthy state?

Answer: Hi Tony, very hard to advise without knowing what type of turf this is. Running grasses such as couch and kikuyu will bounce back with lots of water and a good feed, but buffalo can take a lot longer and may require vertimowing to remove the dead thatch if it is a well established lawn of many years growth. Seaweed tonic may help speed up the process of recovery too. Tufting type grasses will require resowing in autumn to fill in the dead gaps.
