After completely 'burning' out a lawn, how many weeks should I wait to power-seed the lawn?
(asked this previously, but not sure it was successfully sent).

If you haven't received an answer to your first question, it might be that either the question or the answer got lost in cyberspace. Sorry, but sometimes it happens. If your lawn was over-fertilized and that's why it died out, you'll want to give it the benefit of the doubt and water it on a regular schedule. If there's still life in the crowns or roots of the grass, you'll see new growth. If the roots are dead, you won't see new growth, but with regular water applications you will be leaching away the excess fertilizer so when you reseed, the new grass can germinate and grow into a healthy new lawn. It's still a little too warm to start a new lawn. Wait until the first week of September to overseed your lawn. Best wishes with your new turf!
