    I just plant new sod about a month ago and it was coming in beautifully. I mowed it a 1/3 about a week ago. Then I read I could use a low nitrogen fertilizer and I did and it burned in some spots. From what I read I can't do anything but water it. Is is true? Any recommendations? I'm really upset. Thanks

    Water it like crazy! Unless you fertilized too much it shouldn't have burned.

    When did you fertilize it?

    What did you use? Any high quality synthetic fert with a moderate to high level of slow release N would not burn new sod like that. Did you use straight urea or something?
