Compost and fertilizer??

Hi, yesterday I used Scotts starter fertilizer on my entire yard. My sod was laid last November and there were some poor spots so the builder replaced several pieces.

Today, I top dressed with a light layer of compost from Home Depot mixed with some topsoil.

Is this too much for the lawn? I didn't realize compost could burn the lawn.

I'm in San Antonio texas with Bermuda grass.

It should be fine, as long as the compost wasn't "hot" (which means the composting process wasn't finished). It doesn't mean physically hot. I wouldn't be concerned.
