Hi all, I am a newbie, looking for a nice green thick lawn. I just bought a home on a 0.4 acre lot. The lawn was patchy in places and didn't look good after the New England winter, patchy bald areas, hard soil, bumpy! In April I did a core aeration, top dressing with fertile topsoil, and overseeded the bald areas. I applied Lesco starter fertilizer to initiate the new grass. Recently, I wasn't watering much, as I say im a newbie and trying to figure this out, but with the weather over the last two weeks the bald spots have reappeared and the garden is almost as bad as it was. A lot of the bald areas never took to the new seed, probably because I seeded a bit too late and didnt water enough.... So my question is, what is the best fertilizer I can use to feed my lawn and get it thick and green???? Also, how much time per station should I set my sprinklers to? I am also planning a 3 weekly Jerry Baker summer lawn feed, ie beer can, detergent, ammonia, and corn oil/molasses... Any thoughts or advice???? I had a colleague suggest Sustane, he didnt mention which one, good??
