Sirs: I a few weeks ago I applied weed and feed fertilizer named Vigoro Ultra Turf Phosphorus Free 28-0-3. I may have applied it to heavy and now my lawn has brown spots and is burnt in several areas. What can I do to repair the brown patches and restore my lawn?

I'd simply water the lawn heavily and frequently (twice a week) to leach out the excess nitrogen. Some of the brown areas will recover and those that do not recover within the next 2-3 weeks can be raked out and reseeded. Best wishes with your lawn!
