you probably should have started a new thread - but if you couldn't find any granules in the bag, you're probably fine.

I had the same issue recently on a lawn that was winter fertilized and I cut it one or two days later. I started mulching, but the owner wanted it cut down from about 3 to 3 1/2 inches down to 2 to 2.5 inches. I would have had to make at least two cuts to mulch properly, so I decided to bag. Never even though about the granular that had just been laid. I got half way through the lawn and realized that I may be picking up the fertilizer too. I picked through one entire bag of clippings and I couldn't find any obvious fertilizer granules.

I told the owner that his fertilizer was safely still on the lawn. Do you think this was likely?

The fertilize used was CIL GOLFGREEN™ Fall Lawn Fertilizer 12-3-18.


Yes your fine don't give it another thought....

fish - you are probably ok, esp. if you didn't find many prills in your bagged material.

Also, why such a high K # for a winterizer? Save some $$ and use a good quality N fert, you may not need the K.

Dunno - I didn't put it down, the owner did this himself.

Thanks for the help again!
