I recently had a infestation of Poison Ivy all over my property. I finally got rid of it but now my grass is all dead. What do I do? Do I have to start over?

Unfortunately, if you used a nonselective herbicide such as one containing glyphosate, then you will need to start over.

Please check the label of whatever product you used to verify if there is a waiting period before replanting an area where it has been used.

Also, keep in mind that the poison ivy may regenerate from the roots. If so, you may want to spot treat the regrowth by applying the herbicide with a wipe on application method rather than spraying it so you have better control.
