I have been checking out the forum for months and its great. so I had a question I wanted directly answered. I got a spot in my lawn I had to dig big tree roots and rocks out of and had to replace it with top soil 6 inches deep. I am ready to plant the seed. as far as fertilizers go.....should I lay the fertilizer in the dirt and mix it up before planting or sprinkle it on the top before or after seeding. remember now this is 2 spots where they are about 4X5 feet. I am using tall fescue and the soil is a dark clay like soil. I have been adding humic acid and kelp in it. right now I got espoma 5-10-5....should I get something better and then switch up the ratio of fertilizer if I was going to give it one more application before winter. again thanks a lot guys.
