I'm wondering if any of you fertilize your lawn? Before we moved I once bought a bag of weed and feed off the store at Walmart just thinking all fertilizers are the same. They are not though. There are different mixes for different type of soils or needs. Last year I bought 2x 50lbs bag of this local stuff called Super Iron Plus. It has a higher concentrate of Iron in it, remember Iron = green lawn. Plus it uses slow release Nitrogen. Another words it has a polymer plastic coating where it slowly dissolves into the ground and not all at once. The trick is to lay it down right before you get moisture. You don't want to through fertilizer on and let it sit, it will actually burn your lawn. Also your trees and especially if you have Aspen trees love Iron. In fact it helps with a disease they can get. I was impressed last year with the results though. My lawn because of the size of it takes about one 50lb bag to do it. I just use a hand spreader. I got around my trees a little heavier. Then I used my other bag in the Fall and did the same thing. It's cheap lawn care with great results. If you want more growth you would probably want to go with a 16-16-16, but I am not looking for growth. They also make different blends for different seasons such as Fall etc. Does anyone else apply fertilizer?
