    You should probably avoid fertilizing at all. First sign of weeds and they will be wanting weed control which you cannot apply without a licence and special insurance.
    As far as burning lawns, it can be done with granular as well as liquid. It is from over fertilizing. Maybe from just too much fert or improper overlapping or stopping while the lever is still open.
    Without experience, you can get into real trouble.
