I live in Indiana and was wondering if someone could give me some insight on fertilizing. Using granular do you need a license? I know you need it for pre-emergence and pesticides, but what could I do without a licesense if any. Also do you guys put a good cutt on the turf before you fertilize or will you put an application down within a couple of weeks before you mow for the first time. How many applications do you do, won't you burn up a yard doing fertilization in the middle of the summer on a cold weather turf?
