    New customer calls saying they burned there sod over fertilizing , so i went to take a look..turns out they did burn some established sod using a high nitrogen fert 28- ? - ? .The temps were very high and no rain for a month and a half. The roots are dead..What the best way to fix this besides replacing the sod..If i slit seed in 3 directions will this work..i really dont want to get to much more involved with this project other than slit seeding, will it work:confused: ..Thanks for the help

    how large of an area?
    small just use a rake and pull out all dead grass. check soil sample. Seed and place peat moss over seeded area. have them water regularly. keep from mowing it for at least 4 weeks.
    large area rent an dethatcher and proceed with above. Compost also works well in place of peat moss.
