Check the numbers, check the price, then check the spread rate. For
some folks, a "bag of fertilizer" is all they need. If you check the
numbers, the price is probably close for per-pound of nitrogen. But,
then, all the nitrogen in the world won't "green up" grass in real
alkaline soil, because it needs iron to use the nitrogen. Some sandy
soil is high in - phos? pot? - I forget which, so watch the p that you
put on sandy lawns :o)
I've been using Lessco Starter Fertilizer all year long on an established
long with excellent results. The ratio is 12-10-10 or something close to
that. My neighbors always ask me what I use for fertilizer. I treat the
weeds separately with a weed killer spray that attaches to the hose.
