    For KBG lawns. It's my first application of the wonderful stuff. I think if it's half as good as it's proponents say it is I'll be really happy.

    Depends on the growth your after, cutting height, bagging or mulching , etc. My mowing accounts have been fertilized every six weeks so around 10-12 lbs per 1000 is sufficent to maintain without excessive growth to allow mulching at 2.75 in. Higher rate will give you more growth and longer duration. Lower will give color but only for about four weeks. This is for june, july august temps.
