So I'm new to fertilizer applications, I'm currently studying the material for the PROFACT Exam in NJ, and researching on here and elsewhere on the internet for tips on getting the absolute best results. I'm looking to hear back from Northeast Applicators, a lot of my lawns that I mow are currently fertilized by TruGreen. I saw them at one of my accounts, spraying their fall applications. Now, these lawns are fried. I had no intention of ever using spray fertilizer in the fall, I was considering a spray weed and feed for the spring (a suggestion made by numerous guys on here), and slow release granular the rest of the year. Why are these applications frying the grass? If they turn EVERY LAWN brown why are these idiots spraying it? Again, I'm just getting my feet wet in this field, but I don't want to ever end up doing something like this, so learning now is better than hard lessons down the road. Thanks!
