You should just be able to soak the area really well for a day or two to make sure you get rid of the fertilizer alltogether. Then you could just plant some grass or get a piece of sod for that one small area.

Unfortunately there isnít much you can do when you overdo it with
fertilizer, rake it up and remove as much as possible, then water the area heavily for several weeks.

I would cut out the area, remove 1 inch of soil, add new
soil and seed, or sod,
