Liquid Lawn Fertilizer

Spreading of solid lawn fertilizer caused a lotofproblems. However careful I am, i leave at least one burnt spot. I wonder why they don't market a cheap liquid concentrate that can besprayed. I see the chem lawn guy sprays the next yard with a liquid spray. HE DOES NOT WALK UP AND DOWN WITH THE STUPID DROP SPREADER! Is there something like liquid fertilizer for the lawn? Does spraying ammonia with a spray-mix (miracle grow type) help for the nitrogen units?

It's not fully organic by my standards, but Hasta Gro is a very nice liquid fertilizer which you can use in a hose end sprayer. A gallon cost about 16 dollars and Lowes sells it.

Liquid kelp concentrate diluted with water is very good stuff. It's organic, doesn't smell like fish (more like the ocean) and a little goes a long way. Do a google on kelp or seaweed fertilizer. My local Anawalt Lumber sells Growmore and I use that for my plants.

There is no good way of accurately distributing a liquid fertilizer on a large area like a lawn. Hose end sprayers are notoriously inaccurate. If you want to purchase a $600 spray rig and spend the time learning to calibrate it and practice application techniques for a month or so to get it right then liquid fertilizers can work. Otherwise, stick to time release granular fertilizers that don't burn and apply them with a properly calibrated spreader.

Use a broadcast spreader and fertilize lightly and you'll get done far faster and not have burns.
