Re: EriCS soil test

Heya guys, I was wondering if I should do anything in addition to my soil remediation plan now that its mid fall? I was applying 10-10-10 all purpose fertilizer every 3-4 weeks as recommended by Andy as well as a second application of fast acting gypsum. Any help is appreciated thanks!

Every three weeks FOR WHAT?

BTW, many states outside of NY have Phosphorus restrictions.
For the applications of 10 10 10.

Re: EriCS soil test

Thanks for the insight, this obviously is a long term process. I just was curious if yearly applications of something purchased would speed up the process somewhat and whether it was worth the investment. My time and budget will determine all of this regardless. Can you inform me on the fertilizatio...

Re: EriCS soil test

Disregard the previous post, I was able to get to the big box stores today. I purchased 10 10 10 balanced fertilizer as to Andy’s recommendations. From other posts it looks like my application rate is 10 lbs/1k square feet. As far as the mediocre OM% is it worth in applying milorganite as well throu...

Re: EriCS soil test

Reading further garden fertilizer nitrogen is in the form of quick release. Any concerns in applying ample nitrogen? I was scheduled for an application yesterday by my lawn care company but cancelled considering I was going to be doing my own application of some sort anyways. I currently have a bag ...

Re: EriCS soil test

Home Depot or Lowe's should have 10-10-10 or 13-13-13 for super cheap. Home Depot will also have that Lesco Starter 18-24-12 if you want to price compare. Thanks I was just looking into wether I could use a garden balanced fertilizer instead. HD had 10 10 10 available for 40lb bag at 13.00 bucks a ...

Re: EriCS soil test

I called my local Site One, the best balanced fertilizer they currently have in stock is lesco 18 24 12. Any suggestions on application rate? Thanks

Re: EriCS soil test

By performing the soil amendments and adding a balanced fertilizer, should I continue paying for professional lawn services throughout the rest of the season? My next visit is scheduled on the 17th for early summer late spring fertilization.

Re: EriCS soil test

I’m assuming I still should go ahead and apply the foliar fas regardless if I’m going to try and remediate the high magnesium levels with fast acting gypsum?

Re: EriCS soil test

I've used it and have written about it on the site. It works well. PS: if you buy 5 or more bags, it's 10% cheaper... Thanks Andy, any particular order in putting this stuff down? As far as the OM, the only free option for me is to continue mulching the clippings and leaves in the fall. I will also...

Re: EriCS soil test

The Lowe’s which is local to me had Sta-Green fast acting gypsum at around 10 bucks a bag. Is this product on par with the rest like Pennington etc?

Re: EriCS soil test

Also any reason why I can’t apply granular FAS instead? It’s would be a pretty daunting task to apply liquid to such a large area. Although I may be willing to purchase a backpack sprayer since I have come this far. Thanks

Re: EriCS soil test

Thanks for the reply Andy, do you feel it’s worth a shot at trying to remediate the Magnesium issue? My main concern in the time being is a healthier lawn and color as well. There are some large areas with thinning and moss filling in those bare areas. The color of the lawn is poor in my opinion and...
