Can Spring Fertilizer and Lime Application be done at same time?
I am in Raleigh, NC and have a tall fescue lawn (Small lawn of about 3,000 sq/ft). I have clay soil. I collected a soil sample last summer and submitted it to the NC Agrinomics Department for analusis. The results I got back inidcated I should apply 15 lbs of lime per 1,000 sq/ft and 20 lbs of 5-10-5 fertiler per 1,000 sq/ft.
My question is this, now that it is time for my spring time application, can I put the fertlizer and lime down at the same time oris that too much for the lawn to handle? Should I space out the application over a few weeks?
Would you put all this fertilzer down even though we are in a drought and are not allowed to water our lawns?
Thanks for the help!
