No wonder the one of the largest issues of lawn care these days is nitrogen finding it's ways into our water systems. Dumping Nitrogen onto lawns to get a green and flooding with water to keep green throughout 100 degree days while ignoring soil PH and soil structure is just ignorant to me. What I've always learned is 4 lbs of nitrogen is all a fescue lawn needs per year. And this includes any nitrogen you gain from mulching, side discharging, leaves, etc. If the lawn is not acceptable after 4 lbs of nitrogen a year, then you need to look at when you're fertilizing, watering techniques/schedules, soil structure, soil PH, and lastly Micro nutrients (iron, etc.) Am I off base here? I understand Customer satisfaction drives our industry but when do you say enough is enough and start worrying about our environment we're destroying?
