Best course of action

Asked June 19, 2017, 8:57 PM EDT

Have received my soil test results, thank you for the quick test results. My test number is DZ9E25. What would be the best fertilizer to apply at this time. Looking at the results, maybe 16-16-16? Thanks in advance

The fertilizer recommendations on your soil test do recommend a 16-16-16 under option 3. When you get your soil test result, the fertilizer recommendations can be found after the test results. There are usually three choices listed and you can choose whichever fertilizer recommendation is made, depending on what is available at your garden center. Since this is for a new lawn you may purchase a fertilizer that contains phosphorus. Apply as recommended on the soil test report.
