Good Afternoon, I had about 1600 sq ft of sod installed in my backyard, about 2 weeks ago.When should I start fertilizing. I should tell you that I live in Albany,NY, if that changes anything. Thank You

Sod is fed before it is harvested so your new sod won't need any fertilizer until late summer (September). At that time you can apply a winterizer type fertilizer. Just keep it watered and mowed and it will be happy. Enjoy your new lawn!
