    That looks pretty good for the most part. Are you using any organic N?

    Well, I think it looks like a sound program, however I am in Michigan. But it looks good. I try to get as much organic N down as possible. There are combo products that have SCU and bios. Lesco has an 18-2-18 that I like.

    I'm also curious as to where the other HALF of your dimension is? the .10% is considered the split app rate applied at about 4 pounds per K. You need to repeat the application in 6 to 8 weeks. A single app Dimension is the .21%

    Also, I see you have a "weed and feed" listed... Not a fan of granular broadleaf control. You can get MUCH better control for a lot less cost using liquid for the broadleafs.
