Three weeks after that, I look at the lawn and if it's not coming in too well at that time, I'll apply another dose of the Starter. I'll continue to do this until the lawn is full and thick. If it does become full and thick by the time I'm ready for the 3rd application, I'll switch over to a regular fertilizer or combo product (whichever may be needed at that time.)
You beat me to it! I follow behind a couple seeding guys and that's my program as well. They do the pre-plant starter, then I follow with 3 apps. of starter, .75 lbs. N per app., 3 weeks apart, then go into a maintenance program.
