Sod is typically fertilized just before it is delivered and installed so waiting 2-3 months after installation is a good idea. It should be established well enough by now for you to feed it. Be careful with your fertilizer, though. When temperatures are hot the fertilizer can burn the grass blades. Follow label directions for application rates and water your turf well after fertilizer application. Best wishes with your lawn.
