I guess my question now is. Would I be safe to follow with fertilizer at 30 days?
No problem at all,especially this time of the year.

I think he put the deflector down thinking that is how you let the fert out. So he used way to much fertilizer on the rest of the property which is on the side of the house and backyard.

Am I screwed or what? I should have told him not to fertilizer as he has never done it before but I didn't think he would. On a positive side the lawn hasn't had any fert all season.
How is your new seed doing??? I would think that more fert is completely a waste of money this late in the season...

One double app plus another single app in 30 days... Sounds like real prime time to me...

Putting a second app after he put a double 1st app would appear to make the second app not needed.
