Side by side tests have one very limiting flaw: that is it does not address the current status in relation to the long term viability of a turf...

A good exa: is the guy who dumps a bunch of N on the turf in the Spring... more when the drought hits, and more when the drought continues in the Fall and even more the following Spring when 50% of that lawn is dead soil covered by dead grass...

It looked superior the first Spring... if looking superior in May of 2012 is your criteria for analysis,,, then dumping a bunch of fertilizer on April 15th is your answer... that is a very narrow view of a complex living organism...
