How To Calculate The Fertilizer Rate
All right, so a little math is needed to get the proper amount of fertilizer on your lawn. This will not be as painful as it could be. Just a few equations and measurements will make the process simple.
Maintaining the bluegrass lawn will require approximately 3 to 5 lbs. of Nitrogen per 1000 square feet on an annual basis. The actual amount applied is spread out over the three fertilizations that we spoke about in this blog. If your lawn is high maintenance, then we suggest using the higher rate of 5 pounds per 1,000 square feet of lawn. Otherwise, use the 3 to 4 pounds per thousand square feet.
