Fertilizer for new Bermuda Tifway Sod
Laid Bermuda Tifway 419 sod in late June in Austin, TX (timing out of our control...long story). Been watering and mowing according to recommendations on this forum and "Bermuda Bible." Haven't applied fertilizer yet, though. A few questions:
1) What fertilizer should I use for this 1st application? A specific recommendation for something available at Lowes/Home Depot would be ideal.
2) What about fertilizer type for subsequent applications? Frequency of applications?
3) Finally when and how much should I water/mow after applying fertilizer?
High temps here are hovering around 100 degrees with no recent or forcasted rain. Sod is rooted but green with lots of straw-colored patches.
Any other suggestions to help sod thrive in middle of a hot summer?
