Perfection is best achieved with healthy plants... What they expect to be perfect,,, often times looks like substandard nonesense,becuz their plants are sickly and weak...
Only their delusions make them believe it is 'perfect'...

They can't admit to themselves that someone else's turf, ornamentals etc. looks better than theirs so they just believe that by throwing money at a situation makes it better... believe me,,, your LI delusionals are no different than the WI delusionals...

If they asked me to 'fertilize' the woody shrubs,,, I'd just charge a big price for little compost... everyone is better off and no lies were told...

If you need to fert shrubs, use a L&O fert such as Osmocote instead of 46-0-0. They are a much slower release form of fert.

46-0-0 for ornamental shrubs question

That small rate will move right thru. But I like the poly coats for landscape areas also.

Yes, we used 1.5 lbs. of N per 1000 sq. ft. with Feature 6-0-0.

3.25 lbs. of urea in how ever much water you put out per 1000. and 3 lbs. of feature 6-0-0 in 100 gal.

46-0-0?!?!? You're going to give those plant a Nitro "high" by pushing a lot of foliar growth. Could also risk turf and root burn. Go w/ a balanced slo-release. Honestly....46-0-0 sounds like a cheap UBM that TruGreen would use!
