We had new sod put in last August over a small area. I was advised to not use any weed and feed on it initially or over the winter. Here in central Texas we will start getting some grass growth in the next month or so. I would like to get a jump on the weeds as there were quite a few last year (grass didnt go dormant until late November). Would it be ok to add a weed and feed now?

According to an article I read at NG Turf (a sod company in Georgia):

To get ahead of spring weeds, apply a pre-emergent herbicide in February or March before soil temperatures reach 55°F.

Hope that helps!
Best of luck! Cheers!

We have Zoysia here !
Zoysia grass will choke out any weeds without any help and never needs fertilizer either. Within one season it grows into a thick green carpet! Heh, that stuff grows in asphalt! I would advise patience.
