soil fertilizer

Asked March 9, 2015, 3:05 PM EDT

Can you tell me what ratio I need to fertilize my lawn in by handheld seeder? Would it be set on 2 or 3? What fertilizer do I need to buy? Is 15-15-15 okay? I live in Marshall county if that helps the with soil type. Also, can I do this the same time I spread my grass seed?

For a proper fertilizer recommendation you will need to have a soil test taken on the area that you think needs fertilization. Then, your County Extension Agent, Nikki Rhein, will give you specific directions on how much and when to apply the fertilizer. You can call Nikki at 270.527.3285.

Good luck,
