    Agreed and even less N on established lawn that you have been applying to for years, No need to ever be over 3.5-4 lbs for entire year. Just a waste of MONEY

    If the plant can't use the Nitrogen below a certain ground temperature where is the Nitrogen going........

    In Nature are the grasses winterized......

    In Nature, grasses aren't maintained at a 3-inch height, free of weeds or bare spots. If the key to professional turf management was always to imitate Nature, the simple solution would be to simply let the lawn go. But that's not what we're being paid to do.....
