    Lesco dealer in Independence, Mo. gave me a sheet at the beginning of the year for what they recommend/suggestion to use for a 5 step program. I have modified it for what I want to use for my customers.

    Don't know how much you can divulge about Lesco's decision making.
    How did Lesco develop this plan? Was this a scientific analysis of what is good for zone 5/6 or for clay soil or ?.

    Early Spring 19-0-6 Dimension 30% PPSCU
    Late Spring 19-0-6 Dimension 30% PPSCU
    Summer 14-0-14 Mach 2 30% PPSCU (season long grub control)
    Early Fall 32-3-8 30% PPSCU
    Late Fall 35-3-5 quick release fertilizer

    What we recommend for different zones are general fertilizer recommendations as related to turf types, climate and soil types. We can not be specific because of many underlying factors such as soil pH, varying climatic and soil conditions that may differ within each given zone. You can take the basic programs provided by LESCO and then custom fit them to you and your customers specific needs.
