Yesterday I applied "Scotts Turf Builder Plus 2 Weed Control" to my lawn. Unfortunately, I had the drop spreader set incorrectly. As a result I later discovered that I had accidently applied 4-5 times as much fertizer as specified on the bag. Will this damage the lawn? Is there anything I can do to prevent damage?

When you apply 4-5 times as much fertilizer as is recommended on the bag, you can easily burn and kill your lawn. The best thing to do would be to water it deeply and try to leach some of that fertilizer down.
