    im new to the fertilizing world. a couple customers want their yards fertilized. i had a guy tell me 10-10-10 and lime but some of the yards dont have a nice grass base. a lot of weed cover. ive always used the scotss 4 step on my own yard. whats your thoughts?

    Unless you are licensed you could recieve huge fine for applying Scotts weed products... you are probably OK to do fertilizer on other peoples' property,,, but I don't know PA law...

    I doubt there is a need 10-10-10... just use some sort of N product like 26-0-0 or something similar, paying close attn. to the slow release data on the bag...

    Weeds are better sprayed when actively growing rather than using granular products anyways...
