New Lawn Help
Hi, I just recently got rid of my moss, aerated and seeded my lawn back on 4/20 of this year. When I seeded, I fertilized with Scotts Starter. I followed up with another application of Starter Fertilizer 5/20 and for the most part my lawn looks beautiful. I have mowed it twice already and I still have some thin areas that I will seed again in the fall. However, I still have some little guys around 1-2" that havent fully grown yet. I was told be the guy at my local Agway that I should use starter fertilizer ever 4-6 weeks to enhance the roots of the new grass and to give a lift to the little 1-2" blades still sprouting. I just wanted to confirm here weather or not thats a good idea, as most others tell me I should follow up with straight turf builder. I want this new grass to root up before the heat comes so it can survive. Being on a well, its tough to water with extreme heat/drought conditions as I dont want to run my well dry. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.
