Trying to give customer advice on mowing after first growth is cut, and what fertilizer do you recommend? My partner wants to stay "safe" and just say 8-32-16, but I'm leaning towards 16-16-16 since the lawn is strong enough to cut. Any thoughts?

Grazie!:alien:

its probably because most of us dont know what to recommend. I dont do fert. So i would be lying if i told you what to use. Most people that have looked at this so far probably dont even know what 16-16-16 means. I wouldnt have a couple months ago.

The first thing we need to know is what type of grass it is and what the climate is like this time of year for your area. Here in NC, Im putting down 5-10-31 on tall fescue.
