Landscaping businesses are often family endeavors. While this can combine the best of both worlds (personal and professional), it isn’t always smooth sailing. Click here to read more.
We are looking at doing some seeding along the county roads where they have been widening them. We always put on a certain poundage of fertilizer but there specs. seems to be a lot more . How much fertilizer do you put on per acre.
For new seeding that willnot be re-fertilized later I try to put down about 10 lbs per 1000 sq ft of a balanced blend fert that gives me about 1.5 lbs of slow release nitrogen per 1000 sqft. Using the slow release fertilizer sort of insures that there is still some fertilizer available when the seed germinates. I say sort of insures because, depending on the weather, most of the nitrogen will have leached out before the seed germinates.
