On August 28 I put grass seed on a good portion of my lawn (after dethatching) and used a starter fertilizer with the #'s 9-13-7. I'm wondering if I need to put any additional fertilizer on the lawn this fall or since I used the starter fertilizer should I wait until 2015 ? (My lawn is approximately 5,000sq. ft.) If you do recommend another fertilization please include when it should be applied and what type of fertilizer would be best. Thanks

Another application of fertilizer could be applied now or before the end of Oct.. Please see the links above for more information. The amount of fertilizer and the components of the fertilizer should be based on your practices for the most economical and effective fertilization. The second link is to an easy to use fertilizer calculator.
