The Q&A Archives: Burned Grass

Question: mistakenly I used weed and grass killer on some my grass now grass has burned spot on it, how to fix?

Answer: The grass was probably killed, roots and all. I would rake out or dig out the affected area, sprinkle in some fresh soil and a little compost, then rake it level and overseed. The new grass seed will sprout in 7-10 days and look good as new in a few weeks. Good luck with your lawn.
