    What kind of grass? What does the soil sample say?

    Take a soil sample.
    Get it tested.
    Follow the advice of the lab based on what the soil needs.
  8. A soil sample will tell you what the lawn is missing.

    Most cool turf needs 4# of N per a season, some of that you get by discharging or mulching the clippings, and leaving them in the lawn.

    4 apps should do the trick if using the right product.

    Good advice there...also, do you have a Lesco dealer there or any other fertilizer dealer in your area? They will know something more related to you region. Take your soil sample to your local extension service then they will give you advice....along the lines of what Green Pastures suggested.

  10. Correct me if I am wrong, but a soil sample will tell you what's missing, it doesn't tell you what you need for normal maintenance.
