46-0-0 Urea application and timing instructions
This will be my first time using 46-0-0 Urea. Lawn is tall fescue.
I have read on here that Thanksgiving weekend is usually around the right time to apply it but that is not very specific. The lawn has not grown for 14 days, the temperatures are still mild here in Maryland, and I can see the blades of grass beginning to go dormant. I have read on here to apply it about 2 weeks before the ground freezes and after there is no more top growth. The lawn has already met one of those two criteria.
I have read a lot of warnings about burning the grass with Urea. I plan to only apply 1lb per 1,000 sq ft on dry grass during a cool, cloudy day, with a broadcast spreader. Then I plan to immediately water the lawn with about 1" of water.
Any tips or advice is appreciated. Thank you.
