You need a herbicide for broad leaf weeds.
What I thought was dandelions is American Burnweed instead.

In a week or so I will be putting down a second application of StaGreen Performance Max fertilizer. Hopefully I can time this with some rain. My bermuda seems to be thicker and it is seeding more since the first application. I am having to mow it about every six days. I started watering it today being is has been a week since the last rain and the temperatures are going to hit over 100 degrees next week. I water each section for about 45 minutes once a week.

Can I put the fertilizer out late one evening and water it early the next morning? I like to stop watering around 10 AM when the sun is shining fully on most of my yard.

I was able to put down my second feeding of Sta-Green Performance Max yesterday evening. There was an early morning rain this morning to get it watered in. I had to mow it last at four days due to the Sophie rule. Sophie is our Yorkie and when the grass gets to her belly it is time to mow it.

I put down a second application of fungicide yesterday. We are in a wet pattern that just won’t quit. First application of Headway three weeks ago. This application I used Scott’s DiseaseEX. Probably will give another dose end of July and have to spot treat. I have to fight this every year.

So I think I accidentally over-fertilized my lawn. Ouch. Is there any hope? My lush green lawn looks terrible.

Water, water and water to hopefully flush the excess fertilizer out.

It has actually been a few weeks already (I didn't realize until it's too late). Is this something that the grass will eventually recover from? Anything else I can do?

When I have used too much fertilizer, the result is either dead grass or excessive growth and a dark green color. There doesn't seem to be any in between.
