Hi, earlier this year my neighbour emptied his fish pond and most of it leaked onto my lawn.
I only laid the turf towards the end of last year and it looked as though it was pretty well established with the exception of a couple of fist sized patches that are bare. Where the pond leaked the grass has died, there is a little grass left but it is all dead and the area is mostly bare.
The neighbour says it 'only' had cleaner in it.
I have spread a granule fertiliser over the area for the past month or so but no growth has happened. I am guessing i need to somehow flush the chemicals out of the soil before i can get any growth the occur.
Is there anything i can do before winter sets in ?
I would be grateful for any advice.
