Lawn fertilizer


I am re-sodding my back yard and according to my soil test, they recommend tilling in a fertilizer formula 5-5-20. All of the starter fertilizers I can find are like the opposite(20-27-5). Does anybody know how I can find a fertilizer of specific formula or does it really matter? Going through a lot to get this done and I want to do it right.

Lawn fertilizer


"Re-seeding" or "re-sodding"? Seeds or sod, which one is it?

Adding lots of potassium is an old wives tale started when someone claimed that adding more K would make the lawn stronger. I guess it depends on your specific soil, but I'd bet that your soil would best assimilate a balanced diet, since all elements are interdependent.

What matters equally as much are the other things...like watering, soil type, grass type, sun or shade, watering, aeration etc.
