How to I fix burnt spots in my lawn?

I accidentally used a dandelion killer that also kills grass. I did not realize it until the next day. It looks like I have a new puppy or female dog. What to do?

    You would need to really water it to dilute the killer for at least a week. Then rake out the dead grass. Overseed with grass seed and rake it in. Cover with a little topsoil and water every other day for a week if no rain forcasted.

    Thank you. We are having a very rainy June and very chilly nights (36 this morning)

    Thank you! I will reseed when the rain stops!

    Dig up the section as well as about 1" of soil. Then, buy squares of whatever grass you have. It will blend in within a few months.
