I follows this to a T one year on 3 lawns. They looked like complete and total garbage. @g-man nailed it on the head in regards to timing. Drop your rates significantly, up your frequency.Gorgonzola17 said:My buddy sent me the following article regarding tall fescue maintenance in North Carolina.
I have a question in regard to fertilization. It says not to fertilize after march 15th. Is that because of the hot humid summers?? Does that mean synthetic fertilizers only?? I want to put Milorganite down several times this year. Should I not be doing that??
In fact, I've applied half the fert I normally have over the last 6 months, changed N sources, and my lawns are performing better than they ever have.
My view on fertilization is evolving rapidly. It's not the amount of N, it's the function of N.
