PUMPKIN PATCH

Overview:

A pumpkin patch, in most opinions, is the best patch that can be used when repairing drywall. It is very fast to make and the only materials required are drywall and mud.

The greatest benefit of the pumpkin patch is that it is extremely strong and at the same time, very concealable. On patches other than the pumpkin patch, the patch is level with the wall before being mudded, and once mudded, protrudes slightly. The pumpkin patch, however, is slightly recessed into the wall and is level with the wall once it is mudded.

Here are the materials and tools that will be needed to make a pumpkin patch.

Materials Needed:
The materials needed are: a piece of drywall several inches larger than the hole being patched, and 45-minute drywall mud.

Tools Needed:

The tools needed are: a 6-inch and a 12-inch taping knife, a drywall saw, a pencil, a wet rag, and a drywall utility knife.
