I fertilized my fescue lawn, just as it began to rain Monday. So far, it has
rained 12 inches in the last two days in my area.
Would the chemicals have sunk too far into the ground, or will it work ?
I'm in the foothills of LA.
The fertilizer is probably in somebody's drinking water by now. In
other words, it either went into the soil if you have good percolation,
or it went down the road if you don't. 12 inches is very extreme.

If you had 12" of rain in two days, and it didn't run-off someplace,
then you live on sand. Not sandy soil. Sand. No other ground type could
absorb that much water in such a short period of time. Whether that
run-off was to the "road" or some other drainage path isn't the point.
The point is that most of what you put down has run-off. It didn't go
"too deep into the soil".
