Lesco Fertilizer (Small Yard)

My yard is like 4k sq feet. Does Lesco sell their fertilizers in smaller bags? The big one would be overkill for me. If they don't, can someone recommend some fertilizers other than Scotss that come in small bags?

Check out Milorganite. One bag is supposedly good for 2500 square feet.

Any other bag in the aisle other than scotts, such as vigoro, sta green? They are cheaper physical blend fertilizers, but they are not scotts. The small bags treat 5000 sq ft

Why not just buy a 50lb bag and use it for 3 applications? You should get around 12,000ish sq ft from a bag. Just twist the bag, then zip tie to seal it up. Should be fine.

If you keep it out of damp locations and sealed you will easily get a season out of it.
