    I am in the wastewater treatment field and so this is right up my alley. Aerobic bacteria in the soil & water breathe in oxygen and exhale CO2 like us with no real odors. Anaerobic bacteria breakdown sulphur compounds during respiration and give off smelly gasses like ammonia, sulfides, etc. If the soil is compacted, or stays wet, the anaerobic bacteria will thrive. You can put bleach on it and kill the Anaerobic bacteria for a while, but it will come back when the naturally occuring anaerobic bacteria recover.
    You need an environmental conducive to aerobic bacteria in there. Run a small rototiller through the area (or work it up with a fork) and aerate it, natures aerobic bacteria in the soil will correct the issue in no time.... and it will probably be the best growing flower bed soil you've got.

    Buy a 1 Gallon jug of Nature's Miracle and pour it(full strength) into a pump-up sprayer. Distribute evenly over the affected area. Wait one week and repeat as needed.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    I would NOT recommend bleach as there could be ammonia present and that is a toxic match. Someone posted using the Sweet PDZ stall additive. Consider putting down some lime.
