using up excess starter lawn fertlizer


I have an 18lbs bag of starter fertilizer NPK 16/24/6 which covers 5000sqft.

I only have a 1100sqft lawn of tall fescue, so I'll have a bunch of excess.

Anything harmful to the grass when using this as a regular fertilizer?

Re: using up excess starter lawn fertlizer


Starter fertilizer is just that. If the lawn is established it doesn't need that much phosphorus. Nitrogen is a little heavy, too, unless you like to cut grass. I would have my soil tested and do what the report says to do, rather than guessing and using up what you have.

Starter fertilizer is something like 5-10-10 for new roots and stems. You can use this lightly...year around on your lawn. Lightly. Or.....if you have shrubs and trees...you can fertilize with your 16-24-6.
