Answer: Once the damage shows up, there's not much you can do to lessen the effect of overfertilization. The fertilizer salts will burn the roots as well as the blades so you'll want to rake out the dead grass and roots, dig a little compost into the areas and then overseed. Grass seeds should germinate in 7-10 days if kept moist. Good luck with your lawn!
