Default Just put down 10 pallets of Tiff Sod, what do I do now?

I am watering it in and will roll it Saturday morning, is there any type of
fertilizer I should put down?

The better question would have been what do I do before I put it down?

Like add a good organic fertilizer to your tilled ground, maybe some great stuff Volcanite or better yet Nature's growth aid (both are volcanic sand with paramagnetic properties and is the hot new product for organic groundkeeping). Also I love Medina soil activator with Seaweed, to stimulate the micorganisms in the soil. You can also add microrganisms in a product locally made called Biozome. Also a really good fertilizer is alfalfa meal. Slow release, lower nitrogen, won't burn (very important for this time of year) since the grass is not growing much now. Also adds lots of minerals, important for healthy grass not easily attacked by pests.

But I guess all of that milk is spilled. You could still add these over the grass, but it would have been better mixed into the soil. I personnally am totally against chemical fertilizers and have never added it to my lawn and my lawn looks good and I do nothing but cut it!

Thanks for the info, if I would have had more time I would have put down some soil additives prior, but I did not. The dirt was fresh sifted loam so there was no need to till in. I am sure I can find some chemical fertilizer that will make it grow like an SOB come spring.....

Thanks
