You are watching: Vigoro lawn fertilizer 29-0-4

Local landscape supplier is marketed out of Lesco 46-0-0. I picked increase a tiny bag of Vigoro 29-0-4. The guaranteed analysis states only about 2/3 of the Nitrogen is Urea and also the other 1/3 is slow-moving release. Go anyone have experience making use of something prefer this to spoon feeding or is this a poor idea? My arrangement would be to put down .85 lb that product every 1,000 sq feet to obtain .25 lb that N weekly. Thoughts?

That has actually a high sufficient content of fast release urea the it must be ok to use. Using twice the lot bi weekly is fine together well.

Thanks because that the reply. Exactly how much are you placing down bi weekly? If it’s no too much trouble, would you mind sharing the guranteed evaluation on the label? ns don’t know how to interpret what ns bought to it is in honest. Not sure if the slow-moving release is 1/3 the the complete nitrogen or 7 percent an interpretation then i guess 93% that the Nitrogen is quick release...

The rough pointer used below is .25 lb/1k per week, but it doesn"t need to be perfect. The idea is to slowly offer the turf nitrogen so that it adds come it"s winter stores instead of dumping it every at once and having the excess just leach with the soil. Ns fertilized every two weeks critical September & October and my grass to be the first to eco-friendly up and also look an excellent in my ar this spring. I"m definitely not as disciplined together others here, but I have been happy with my results.

I"d assume your fertilizer has actually ~21% quick release nitrogen based upon the label, so also 1 lb/1k would be nice close because that a weekly application.My cheap Walmart stuff has ~25% fast release, for this reason I"d apply at the same rate:

Thank friend so much! This is good feedback. Any kind of tips or choice on devices for applications for the fert? I provided the Scotts whizz for my seed and also noticed the dumps in clumps if you nothing keep moving or occur to organize at the ‘wrong’ angle. Despite the smaller volume I prefer it since I have the right to actually watch the product I’m placing on. Any tips for watering in?

People love to dislike on the Scott"s cheapo spreaders, however I purchase the upstream one and also I love it. Again, regulate expectations. It"s under $100 and for an 8ksf lot, it"s perfect.
