Debris piles may create "storm spots."

Storm spot

A bad storm spot, but it may come back on its own if enough live material remains.

Spot may also have soil gouging from equipment.

Spot with some live grass dispersed should come back on its own in time.

Look for healthy green stolons before you give up on the recovery. This stolon/stem is still alive.

Typical contracted removal .

If debris is concentrated on bare dirt or hardscape, grass loss can be minimal.

Piles, if mixed with other waste, may not be removed by a contractor. Always separate yard plant waste from other waste.

Even a week or so of cover may kill some grass. This depends on the season and density of the pile.
