    Looking for opinions on putting starter fertilizer down before new sod. I have done this before, but it was early in the season and the heat wasn't as hot. Just looking for some advice. I'm laying Zenon Zoysia tomorrow with irrigation on it. Any input is appreciated.

    All the grass we get from our local farms come
    Pre fert. They always told me to wait for a
    Month or so.

    For all blue-grass sod, I apply a strait 13-13-13 on the soil before and lightly on the grass after installation.

    Not sure what the recommendations are for zoysia grass.
