What do you consider new? I waited a month after it was laid before putting anything on it. It was rooted.

All my sod jobs got Milorganite put down UNDER the new sod. This encourages root growth. No weed control for 4 months. Sharp blades always.Grow it tall. You will hear some of us on hear talk about 4.5 and even 5 inches tall on SA. The best weed control is tall,thick,healthy turf. For Scotts products stick with Turfbuilder and Greenmax products. Ironite and Milorganite will bring out the beautiful deep green I think you're looking for.Next spring you can use a pre emergent product for any weed concerns. Bonus S is Atrazine (post emrgent) as an AI and only recommended twice a year on established turf. Heavy irrigation just washes it away and brings on the Pennywort (dollarweed). Good cultural practices go a long way towards a great SA yard.
