not sure where you live but fescue is best established at the end of september, it needs time to establish root density and depth before the hot weather arrives, also you shouldent apply fert to fescue in late spring or summer.Fescue is a cool season grass. You probobly wont like my answer but you need to get a soil analysis thru your local county extension office to determine a starting point. You need to know what the P and K levels are and the PH.The yellowing could be a result of the PH being out of wack or a high level of phosporus tieing up the zinc and Iron. Lay off the fert and water deeply and infrequently. Fescue likes soil ph around 6.0 to 7.5
