    Does anyone know a good fertilizer for spring time in Colorado? And what does overseeding mean? Thanks for your help.

    Not sure about Colorado fertilizer. I think it would depend on what plants you're using it for, soil conditions, and things of that nature. How about some more info? Sure someone on this site knows.

    Overseeding simply means to apply grass seed over the top of soil, usually after the soil is prepared in some manner such as aerating. Hence, you may have heard the terms together "aerating and overseeding" It's really just spreading grass seed with a broadcast or similar type of spreader; as opposed to "slitseeding",which is done with a machine that actually partially buries the grass seed in "slits" that it creates in the soil, or "hydroseeding".

    Am I missing anything, you old pro's out the there?

    Good Luck, Landscraper

    For spring fertilizing Kentucky Bluegrass lawns:
    Look for a 4-2-1 ratio (such as 20-10-5)
    also look for a fertilizer that has sulfur and iron
    Mountain States has a good blend that you can find at most big box stores and/or garden shops.
