The Q&A Archives: dead grass

Question: Over the winter i had gas leak onto part of my lawn, Is there any easy way to make the grass grow there again. the lawn is green except those 2 spots about 4 foot around.

Thank you

Answer: You can reseed the bare spots. There are lawn patch kits available, follow the directions in the package. Or, you can loosen the soil on the bare area, work in a little compost, then rake it smooth and seed it. Rake lightly and tamp the soil to assure good seed to soil contact and cover with a light layer of straw. Water as needed to keep the soil slightly damp until the seeds germinate.
