The gypsum will bring up your calcium and sulfur levels without affecting pH. It's a new lawn with low organic matter so be patient and give it some time.

Corn gluten next spring at 20-25lbs per thousand.
UMASS Stockbridge did the test.

So JUST corn Gluten next spring as a pre-emergent? Do you agree with everything else I laid out to do this fall? I want to NOT fert in the spring if I can avoid. My thinking is as long as I can keep it green, less N in the sprin means less mowing. I was mowing 2-3 times a week this year with all the fert they had me do. As per their recommendation I dont think I can avoid the Late June fert, right?
