I recently fertilized my lawn with a Scotts fertilizer w/weed control. The lawn was wet and tempetures didn't get above 80, but now my lawn has patches of dead grass or burn spots. What can i do to get my lawn back to being green?

Most lawns in western Washington are composed of cool season grasses. These naturally go dormant when temperatures rise in the summer, but green up again when temperatures cool. I think the application of weed and feed is coincidental. You can continue watering your lawn on a regular basis and wait for it to green up this fall, or you can rake and remove the debris and overseed the dead spots. Grass seeds typically germinate in 7-10 days when kept moist.

Best wishes with your lawn!
