I've got a BS in Physics from the University of Rochester, and I'm over half-way through my masters in optical engineering. I work at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics, where I develop and maintain technology for the Omega EP laser.

comment I over-fertilized my lawn. Now what do I do?
Yeah, I thought I was going easy, but I'm just doing this for the first time. I guess my question is weather the grass will recover or if I have to replace it all.

comment Is it possible to hang something on the wall surrounding my chimney?
I'm a renter, so I always get nervous when it comes to test holes and drilling into masonry. Maybe this should be a different question, but I assume that drilling into masonry is generally something for which I should get my landlord's permission?

comment I over-fertilized my lawn. Now what do I do?
@B Mitch: Well, I haven't seen any grubs while weeding and planting flowers in my flower beds, and the brown spots appeared the day after fertilizing. Am I correct in assuming that this pretty much rules out a grub problem?

Oh, I'm sorry. I forgot to mention that on this particular wall I couldn't find a stud at all. I will edit my question to clarify this.
