I talked to a Lesco rep regarding using their products for an annual fert/pest program (yes I'm licensed and insured). The following is his recommendations for Chicago, cool season lawns, mostly bluegrass with some rye and fine fescue, sunny lawns: 1. Dimension .1% 19-0-6 (.79 lb. N/1000ft2) 2. Momentum weed and feed 21-3-21 (.75 lb. N/1000ft2) 3. Merit .2% 24-5-11 (.84 lb. N/1000ft2) 4. 21-3-21 (1 lb. N/1000ft2) 5. 32-3-8 (1lb. N/1000ft2) Applications 1-4 are slow release and #5 is fast release. Does 4.5 pounds of N per year seem excessive. I have read that 3 to 4 pounds is plenty. I would like to know what other options I have to cut down the N or is this fine??? I would like to hear from the Lesco users, if possible and what you are using.
