Holy cow I over fertilized my lawn


Using Scott's Turf Builder. My crappy spreader was stuck way too far open and I over fertilized my Bermuda lawn big time. I watered for 30 minutes in each affected zone (lawn was soggy) with the sprinkler system to hopefully diminish any negative effects. I live in Texas, and the temps this week will be in the 60s and 50s. Any chance it will completely destroy my lawn to the point of re-seeding? My lawn is still dormant at this point. Ay advice is greatly appreciated. Please don't flame me too bad, I have my wife here for that. Thanks.

Make sure you have plenty of gas for the mower.

Other then that relax for now. You're going to be busy later

An old lady customer of mine asked me to spread some on her lawn.
All the had was an old rusted out drop spreader, the yard was about an 400 X 400 ft.
She had only picked up one small bag.
I did the best I could with what I had to work with.
A couple weeks later her yard looked like a giant checker board.

To prepare it for spring growth. When you treat your lawn during the fall, and then during the winter, it will grow as a more darker, richer green. You'd be outright amazed how much nicer a lawn looks when it's fertilized seasonally.

Yep about to do that in the next week or so. Also spread Ironite for a dark green lawn, just keep it off the cement
