    So a fellow that I work with decided that he wanted to fertilize the lawns instead of letting me do it like normal. He must have had a lot on his mind that day or something, but he striped the lawn horribly. We are using a 24-0-0 fert. Is there anyway of fixing it without making the stripes worse. I don't want the bosses coming down on me for it. We have over seeded with rye and had a wet winter so it may not be to late to fert. again. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Add a little N on the lighter strips. That's about the only solution.
