We have just had our yard sodded in St. Augustine grass. We get sun approximately 4-5 hours per day. Do I need to fertilize, and if so, what do you recommend?

I would wait until fall or later in the spring to fertilize to let the new turf get a good hold without possibly burning the tender roots of the newly growing grass. In fall or late spring, use a fertilizer that is higher in nitrogen (the first number in the N-P-K number).
