Dead grass

United Kingdom Gb

Hi there. We had a swimming pool up for three weeks and now it has been taken down, under the ground sheet the grass has not just died, but left a dark really terribly smelly area, (worse than manure!). What should I do to this area to enable me to re-seed? Many thanks indeed.



leave it to mother nature it will soon recover.

You could put a sprinkler there if you are in a dry region. It will dilute the smell. It is the smell of rotten grass. It will come back eventually.
