About six weeks ago, I put new tall fescue seed in my yard after doing the prep work (tilling ground) and about a week ago I put down some fertilizer, Bonus S, and just realized there is a precaution to not use it on several grasses including tall fescue. I was wondering why my yard was looking so awesome and then all of a sudden many parts were starting to brown. Is there anything I can do to save my grass?

Usually you have to apply this product 2 or 3 times to completely kill Tall fescue. Keep the area well watered, (but not soggy), and fertilize in a month with something that doesn’t have weed killer in it. If you ever need a ‘weed&feed’, use Scotts plus 2.

x2 on what Tommy said. Watering will dilute the fertilizer and move it through the profile. Just keep the water on and your grass should come back.
