How to replenish lawn after accidentally spraying weed killer?

accidentally sprayed Zero Weed Killer on Blue Couch lawn. How do I go about getting grass to come back.?Do I have to replant turf or just put new soil over the top and plant seed!

Re: lawn replenish

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Tequila0001. It's wonderful to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about repairing a lawn.

That really depends on whether the lawn has been killed entirely. If it has turned brown and there are no signs of life, then it sounds like you'll need to re-turf or re-seed the area. You might like to post a few images of the area so our members have a better idea of the extent of the damage. Let me know if you need a hand uploading images.


Here are a couple of helpful step-by-step guides: How to lay turf and How to grow grass from seed.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
