Here's what has happened with my lawn thus far - New house, Tif 419 Bermuda sod installed around March 2017.

In 2018 we have-
Feb - 2-4d amine applied to dormant grass
Mar 31 -scalped
Apr 15- small app Milorganite
May 6- another small app Milorganite
May 7- applied Dithiopyr

Water with inground slrinklers about 2x per week, have been keeping the grass cut at 1 1/4"

My lawn was looking terrific ! Greening up wonderfully and then this week I've noticed brown and dying grass in my yard! What have I done to it? The grass was still brown in spots from the winter but new grass was spreading and starting to fill in nicely. Could the dithiopyr have killed some of my Bermuda ? I'm worried ! I thought I had a handle on this lawn and now I'm afraid I've done something horribly wrong !

Ok! Thank you!! Fingers crossed !
@Tellycoleman I put down 4lbs of granular Hi Yield over my entire yard which is around 2500 sf. Also put down half a bag milo in April and May 6th. I've been cutting every 3 days
@Lawnhunter yes , plan is to use a whole bag of milo ea application but this was my first time using it so I was being reserved 😊 I think I may hold off the pre-emergents and just remain pulling weeds by hand because I do not like the root pruning that is happening ! What is a good synthetic fertilizer I can use in combo with this milo?
