gas spill on my lawn
Last week after a visit from a curiously destructive bear, who chewed through a FULL 5 gallon gas can left on the steps overnight, we are now left with a large brown patch on our lawn approx 5'x 5'.
The following morning we saturated the area with water & a weak solution of dish soap, which only seemed to make a bad situation worse by spreading the fuel to a larger area. At the time our main focus was diluting the gas that had seeped into the french drain system around our home filling our house with gas fumes more so than saving the grass.
A week later the soil still has a very strong toxic gas smell.
The affected area is right in front of our sliding door & highly visible from inside. I would hate to have to wait a year or more to have grass growing in that area again.
