My lawn turned yellow because of cold winter weather. I fertilized it and it came back really green, except for an area that did not grow at all. It looks really bad. Can you tell me what to do? I tried putting more fertilizer on it but I don't think it is going to help. It looks really bad. What can I do?

The first order of business is to rake up all of the dead areas and remove the debris. Then overseed and keep the areas well watered. Grass seed will germinate in 7-10 days. If you keep it watered regularly and remove any weeds that pop up, you'll have a lush green lawn by mid-summer.

Best wishes with your lawn!
