i have planted bermuda sod (is that really planting?) around some new landscape features including a waterfall in my backyard. this was done over the spring, @ 100 sq ft/ weekend for @4 weeks

i have "broadleaf" weeds popping up, although the sod has taken very well

can i fertilize now? or is it too soon?
can i put something down to kill the weeds while fertilizing?

what is a "pre-emergent"? sounds like something in the spring to keeps weeds out maybe?

this is a small area of grass, and i would like to make it look as good as possible.

thanks, and i am glad i found this forum

I tried to reply the other day,but this site was very slow.
Anyway,yes you can fertilize.You can even fertilize before putting down sod,just have to be conservative and keep it watered thoroughly.
Use MSMA for your weeds.In proper amounts,it won't damage the bermuda,but will kill the weeds.Just follow the directions.Most Co-Ops carry MSMA.

Ooops!A pre-emergent is exactly what you think it is.Apply in the spring when your soil temp hits 55-60 degrees.
