Re: dead grass

simply dig out that spot along with approx 4 inches of dirt with it, refill place in new sod. grass roots only go a few inches deep so it should then be fine

If you want to reseed and not lay sod, fill with top soil and manure, compact a little to level it to match the area and seed. Keep it moist, give it plenty of water, but don't flood it.
