There is no need to 'jump ship' on organic products... the microbes are just as active as the plants...

I remember a fella from Maine, said that he put his lawns to sleep for the winter with a good topdressing of compost in November and had great starts to the Spring greenup...
I did that and it worked however,,, that is the same as an Early Spring app of N,,, which of course is bad policy, in that N should be done only after the 2nd or 3rd mowing...

Anyways,,, getting ready for the winter is what the grass will be doing once Summer passes, so getting more fertility into the soil throughout the Fall is what is important, whether it is done synthetically or naturally...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
