    I have a lawn on a very steep hill that appears to have been striped when we last fertilized. Most likely, the spreader wasnt shooting fert uphill as much as it was shooting it downhill. We fertilized with 32-3-8 last Monday.

    My question is should we go back over the whole lawn with a lesser fert or just hit the lighter green areas with 32-3-8. I have never had a problem like this before so please excuse my ignorance. Thanks!

    just try and touch up the spots you missed, if you do the whole lawn you will end up with too much fertilizer in the places you got the first time!
