The Q&A Archives: how do I get the brown spots on my lawn to turn into green grass?

Question: I recently spread Scott's Weed and Feed on my lawn and now there are brown spots on my lawn in some places. Is there something I can do do fix this problem?

Answer: It sounds as though the weed and feed did its job and eliminated the weeds in your lawn. Now that the areas are dead, rake to remove the debris (and to scratch the surface of the soil), then overseed the bare areas. The grass seed will germinate in 7-10 days and the spots will green up within 2 weeks.

Best wishes with your lawn!
