Over-seeding area on lawn has created a colour difference

Q. I have over-seeded an area of my lawn that was damaged and the colour is quite different from the rest of the lawn, what can I do about this?

A. It can be difficult to match a new seed mix with an existing lawn. It’s worth over-seeding the whole lawn if this is not too big a task, for texture and uniformity of colour. In time though, an overseeded or newly turfed area will blend in.
