What to put down at 5 weeks into new lawn
I overseeded a 13,000 s.f. troubled lawn and applied 10,000 s.f. of fresh seed. I applied the usual starter fertilizer at the time of seed and I would like to know what I should put down now, 5 weeks post application? Location is Southern New England.
Re: What to put down at 5 weeks into new lawn
I am applying two applications of starter fertilizer on new lawns about 60 days after the first. This late in the year you might go with a winterizer fertilizer for root growth. I would shy away from the high nitrogen #'s till next year. Have you had a soil analysis recently? That could provide some useful input as to what you really need.
Can you comment on the grass, color, good bad germination, density?
