Over Fertilized lawn - Knowledgebase Question

I'm concerned that I have over fertilized my lawn. Two days ago I put down Scotts Step 4 (on front lawn) and Scotts turf builder (on back lawn) with a Scotts rotary spreader at setting 6 instead of 3.5 by mistake. Should I dowse the lawn now?

Too much fertilizer will burn your lawn so about the only corrective measure is to flood the lawn to try to rinse the excess out. I'd flood the area multiple times to remove the excess fertilizer. Best wishes with your project!
