    are you sure it's not annual bluegrass getting cooked from the heat? I don't think you did anything wrong.

    More than likely some drought stress. We are seeing it down here on lawns that dont have irrigation on yet. Pretty unbelievable to be talking drought stress in mid May

    typically a weed control or even fertilizer, if it is gonna burn, you will notice within 24-48 hours following application.

    its getting very dry here too! but temps are supposed to drop tonight. I would ask the customer to water in the application.

    Your only option IS to WATER.
