So in Canada where I live the spring cleanup is normally done in April then our season normally ends in September/October. It is normally 10-20 degrees from April to July then july to septemper around 20-35 degrees. I have researched other companies that are the big players where I live for fertilizing and I was suprised to find a few use only granular pelts and the biggest one uses liquid. My question which is the best. I have been doing granular fertilizing for a while now and it seems to be a bit expensive, if I went into it I wouldn't be making too much money from the prices I get currently for slow release fertilizer, Like scotts. Also it suggests that it could burn the lawn if it is 30 degrees or warmer for a week straight without any rain which is what seems to happen now. That is why I was suprised one of the companies only use granular. I thought that the best method would be to use a combination or just use liquid. Most of these companies do an application in April/May as a starter, June, July, August and one in September/October (winter fertilizer). The winter fertilizer I know I will be using granular. My question is what is the best way, for the april/may one be good to use a 30-0-4 to start of then have a product like 16-1-1 or 4-1-1 for the other months then apply a winter one? I was thinking liquid would be best as it doesn't require them to water it and if we dont get rain or is warm for us here it won't burn. Any help and questions would be nice from your neighbor from the north.
