Hi everyone.

Hope someone can shed some light on my problem. A week ago i fertilized my lawn with "vigoro weed and feed" and pest killer from home depot. Fast forward few days and I started noticing yellow spots in the front and back of the house. It's getting bigger and I have no clue what is causing this or how to stop it. I am located in south Florida.

Thank you in advance.

Well you used a weed killer so I suspect the weeds are dying.

Hope you watered it enough.

Yes, If you add a granular fertilizer and don't water thoroughly so that it dissolves completely, it can burn the grass. Did you use a spreader to distribute the product evenly? If there was too much in certain locations the watering may not have been enough. It's best to apply just before a period of steady rain, easy enough here where it might rain for a week or more.

900r,
Don't use that on your lawn anymore.
Water the lawn every day for a couple days to wash some of that into the soil.
Just fertilize your lawn in one step.
From the pic, you don't have a half acre to do, so follow the instructions on the bag
so you don't burn it.
Or even better, use bunny feed instead, and you will be improving your soil too.
No burning, water it in good, (the bunny feed), it smells good, and the worms in your
soil will be happy.
You can apply it whenever you want, and it improves the soil, you can't beat that.
