Until nutrient cycling really kicked in I was fertilizing sometimes, 3 times per year to keep the grass green, then Milorganite was sufficient and still if I don't like the color after the leaves are down and picked up in the fall I will add fertilizer again...

The thing that I've noticed also about organic uses of fertilizer is that too little, too much or bad timing of water is going to be a major drawback... Synthetic ferts overcomes the 'look' of the lawn more quickly, but it is often cosmetic and not really what the lawn needed to be healthy...

Bottom line, if you've developed a healthy vibrant soil that is all it can be with what you have to work with and still need synthetic booters here and there, then go for it...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
