    the ashes from the wood makes soil very sweet. You have to turn it acidic .

    Remove the top part of the soil that has been burnt, should only be an inch or less. Then add top soil with some fertilizer. Add grass seed, plants or flowers. Enjoy!

    Use that spot as a temporary compost pile area...then next year, move the compost pile and your soil should be in great shape.

    Turn the soil under, add spagnum peat, composted leaves, and/or manure In the fall. In the spring, add an ammonia based fertilizer ( not calcium nitrate or potassium nitrate ) and maybe a little lime, turn under again. then seed, cover lightly with peat and a bit of straw. this should take care of it!
