    What instructions or info do you leave after you apply fertilizer or fertilzier and pesticides as far as when to mow, water, or walk on the grass?

    Mow- My supplier said that if you mow after app. the high lift blades suck up the granules and break them up and you lose the slow release polymer coating.

    Water- you dont want water on 3-way for 24 hrs, fert doesnt start to work till it gets water. Therefore tell them to water tomorrow? Or just NOT to water today? Do you go so far as to inquire upon signup when thier irrigation goes on? If they call and say you did app then the irrigation went off at 5 am following morning do you automatically re-apply?

    Walk- Just the standard "until dry"?
