The general advice for new marathon lawns is to feed one month after the sod is installed and then feed about every 3 months throughout the growing season. You can use a 3-1-2 ratio of NPK or you can purchase a fertilizer formulated especially for Marathon sod. Check the fertilizer section of your local Home Depot and you'll find a large selection of lawn fertilizers. Best wishes with your new lawn.
