Good afternoon Our recommendation would be to use the Lesco starter fertilizer again around the end of October. The Lesco 24-0-11 was developed for use when your lawn is actively growing between the months of March and September. Giving your lawn another application of starter fertilizer will help supply the nutrients needed for strong healthy plants and roots. Thank you for contacting the Lesco Product Support team.
Good morning We do not have spreader settings for the Scott's Elite spreader. so you'll need to adjust your spreader to apply 4.2 lbs of Lesco 24-0-11 per 1000sf. Generally, speaking the Scott's Elite is about 1/4 to 1/2 setting lower than the Scott's EdgeGuard and the setting on the the EdgeGuard is 6. That will give you a good place to start but please make sure you know how much you are putting out per 1000sf. Thank you for contacting the Lesco Product Support team.
Yes. But you may want to blend in some starter fertilizer also like 30%
Good afternoon and we apologize for not getting to you sooner. This fertilizer is not considered a starter fertilizer. A better choice would be our Lesco 18-24-12 fertilizer. It has been developed specifically to providing all the nutrients the new seedlings need. Thank you for contacting the Lesco product support team.
Good morning, this an excellent fertilizer for bermuda. Please make sure the soil has adequate moisture and continue to water at least once per week. Thank you for contacting the Lesco Product Support team.
Good morning, the general answer would be a qualified yes. After two months of frequent watering of new sod, most of the original fertilizer is mostly leached out of the soil, if you are apply now. This product is probably too high in nitrogen to be considered a fall fertilizer. Thank you for contacting the Lesco Customer Support team.
Good afternoon If temperatures are consistently above 85 degrees and you do not have a way to water, do not apply this product. You can either wait for cooler temps and/or a good chance of rain. Thank you for contacting the Lesco Product Support team.
Good afternoon We apologize for not answering sooner. Please wait about 4 weeks before applying the Lesco 24-0-11 and do not apply another application of fertilizer for at least 6 weeks after that application. Thank you for contacting the Lesco Product Support team.
Hi, I live in Central Texas Copperas Cove. What is recommended is to conduct a soil test either in the fall or spring or even in July after a few applications of fertilizers. What I learned from Allyn Hane (Look for: The Lawn Care Nut, or Jake The Lawn kid) on YouTube, is that in the spring is good to load with Nitrogen to promote growth. Nitrogen promotes healthy leaf growth and encourages production of chlorophyll, the chemical for photosynthesis. The last number on the right (11 K) is Phosphorus, and it helps your grass to develop healthier healthy roots and stems. Basically, Potassium makes your lawn strong, and it becomes more resistant to drought and diseases. When it comes to the 15-5-10 that is the Ratio recommended by the University of Texas for a slow rate and preventive at the same time. It is a matter of preference. For 3 years now, I apply a total of 2X total applications of 24-0-11 1X on February and a second one in March, April and May I load on Morganite and just maintain ever 28 days with 15-0-10 until September. I keep an eye for diseases when is humid and apply my season long grubs and insects preventives. https://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/extension/ornamentals/lawnfert/lawnfert.html
No, this contains no broadleaf herbicide so it is not harmful to shrubs or flowers.
