FINDLAY, Ohio (May 16, 2014) University of Findlay in northwest Ohio will have to replace almost all its grass after weed killer was accidentally applied to lawns instead of fertilizer.
University spokeswoman Brianna Patterson said the chemical was applied to campus lawns during the last week of April.
She said it will take several weeks to reseed and re-sod the affected areas.
Patterson said the mistake was unfortunate because of how hard the university works to keep the campus looking nice.
Findlay University did not release the name of the company that made the mistake, but is working with the business' insurance company to pay for it to be fixed.
The university said grass was killed over as many as 54 of the campus' 72 acres.
