A bridge program, wisely uses the best of both worlds(natural/synthetic) to give the client what he wants as a weedfree vibrant green lawn, all thick and lush...

I use compost, Milorganite and Spot Spraying in the Spring, mostly... synthetic fert at the end of the Heat of Summer... if there is a lot of cool rainy weather I will add some more compost for overseeding and apply a fast acting fertilizer as a "Winterizer", by mid-Oct... Nothing after that except Spot Spraying broadleaf,,, if they haven't been actively growing up to that point...

I follow the weather moreso than a 'schedule'... give the lawn what it needs WHEN in needs it...
Pre-m mixed with NPK as being a "Standard" synthetic fertilizer,,, should not be called fertilizer,,, becuz pre-m inhibits growth and has nothing to do with a healthy lively soil/plant in a sustainable way or otherwise...
Thanks Rabbitman11...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
