I see they now have 12-0-12. Evidently the middle number was phosphorus.
This is supposed to be water friendly. All of a sudden our lawns don't
need phosphorus now? Or do they?
What about lime. I don't see anybody lime their lawns any more. Is that
out of fashion?

For the most part the first number is what grass uses to green up and
grow. Best to do a few soil tests, then you can decide which
fertilizer ratio is right for YOUR lawn. All plants need a little
magnesium for optimum growth, but you can use epsom salts for that.
If your pH is below 6.5 add lime (500 pounds per quarter acre) and
test again in 6 months. If you add lime when the pH is above 6.7,
you're really wasting time and money.
