The Q&A Archives: Lawn

Question: My lawn was burned by appling to much ironite. Is there anything I can do to repair it and make it green again. Thank you

Answer: I wish there were a quick fix, but the only thing you can do is apply lots of water to leach the chemicals from the soil. Once it has dissapated, you can reseed the burned areas after raking out the dead grass and roots. Sometimes leaching is all it takes - the lawn will green up on its own. But if you don't see any improvement by late fall, you'll want to overseed the brown areas. Best wishes with your lawn!
