    Customer's wife just hired me after the husband scalped the snot out of his lawn this past weekend. Bermuda lawn, lots of burn spots - and turning very brown already. Is there anything I can put on the spots to get the green back quicker.

    Thanks.

    Liquid Ironite works wonders

    That is called "sheeting" and there is not much hope short of painting the grass to get the color back in this temperatures. Some of these burmuda grasses are supposed to be cut short but that is only done in early spring and then the tips will green up and everything is okay.

    It will work. Be sure to water it in good
