Although sod is already fed fertilizer, Do I need to use fertilizer for one month old sod? Is there any problem If I use a bit of fertilizer?

If you overfeed your lawn you can encourage fungal diseases so don't feed just because you think it might need to be fed. If your sod was installed in April, it won't need feeding until June. Wait another 4 weeks before applying ferilizer. The general advice is to feed a lawn in April, June, September and late November. Since your sod was fed before it was installed, we'll count that as the April fertilizer application. Wait until June before feeding again. Best wishes with your new lawn.
