sylvester asked 12 years ago

Does commercial fertilizer (e.g. 27-2.5- 5) when used on lawns produce faster and coarser growth than that specially compounded for lawns which, generally, seems to have a much lower nitrogen content? Also, is the commercial variety depleted more quickly in the soil than the regular lawn type?

Farm fertilizers, such as high nitrogen fertilisers, are much the same as the basic kinds of lawn fertilizers though higher in nitrogen and very effective. They are quick release and give quick results, but if over-used give a lot of mowing.

If they are used, they should be used in small amounts, 15 per square metre at a time. And they are much cheaper.
