we're talking 32-4-8.

Also, do you guys blow off the sidewalks? I was watching weed man and he didn't care about either.

fert in beds? sure...why not....oops?

what's so bad about 32-4-8? It doesn't mean it's supercharged nitrogen, it means you can get ~15K out of that stuff. I would use fert with N that high in the fall, and it's probably a faster release too.

i always blow off hard surfaces.

That is high mixture, but you shouldn't have any problems w/ it in the landscaping.

Its hard to keep it out of beds. If it has a pre-m or post-m in it try to keep it out of gardens. Always blow off sidewalks. people appreciate it.

Years ago I wasted a bed of Heather by slinging high N lawn fertilizer into it. Most planting beds will appreciate a pound of N. But some will be devastated. Be careful.

We replaced the Heather but Missus still cancelled.

I bought a Scotts hand spreader just to be on the safe side for areas that are too skinny. My large spreader ($150) doesn't have a blocking mechanism on it.
