Maybe, I wasn't clear. The N rate was 1 pound per 1000 in the spring. ( unless it is severely dense shade under trees- then, it's 3/4 lb.
Then, a half lb in the summer. 40-50% Slow release.
Finally, a pound in the late fall- October (unless it is dense shade)

The total is 2 to 2.5 lbs per thousand per year. How is that excessive??? (also note P & K assimilation)
Thanks for clearing that up! As GroundKprs has pointed out, K = 1,000. You should add the "sq. ft." to a K when you mean 1,000 sq. ft. or use M (which means 1,000 sq. ft.). This makes much all the difference in the world. Thanks for clearing that up Matthew! I thought you were telling us K as in potassium. No, 2 - 2.5 Lbs. N per M is very reasonable for shade. Good luck.
