I PLAN TO APPLY COUNTRY ESTATE LAWN FOOD (22-0-8). THE BAG LISTS SPREADER SETTINGS FOR “SCOTT’S EASY GREEN” BUT NOT FOR MY SPREADER “SCOTT’S TURF BUILDER EDGEGUARD BROADCAST SPREADER MINI” A ROTARY SPREADER. WHAT SETTING SHOULD I USE?
THE BAG IS SILENT AS TO WHETHER OR NOT IRRIGATION IS REQUURED AFTER APPLICATION. IS IRRIGATION REQUIRED, AND, IF SO, HOW MUCH?
You’ll need to locate your spreader’s owners manual to find the setting that applies 4 lbs. per 1000 sq. ft. No watering is necessary. That said, I’d not feed the lawn during this period of high heat. Water only until temps. drop back into the 70°s. Feeding during the heat of summer doesn’t help a lawn that is already under stress. Water heavily applying an inch of water all at one time once a week for deep watering…a light spray just evaporates before reaching the roots.
