I time things according to the weather, currently... In the context of August the current weather is in the 90's and DRY... it is expected to remain in the 90's until Friday,,, with the only rain, coming from heat generated T-Storms...

That tells me that I do NOT want to Squirt&Fert anything at the moment... Fall renovations will continue to be 'Put Off' until the weather pattern changes for the better, but this time in the Context of September...

It is unusual for us to get opportunity to start the Fall fertilizer in August, but we had such mild temperatures in the first half of August that I got it down and washed in B4 the Heat Wave, so there is little chance of N burn or forced top growth during this time...

For cool-season grasses you want the majority of your fertilizer put down between now and Winter...
