I am a new homeowner and put down the 1st step (Scotts/Halts) last month. I remember it says on the bag to not apply anything fertalizer or seed for FOUR months?
rh71's schedule is pretty much what I do every year and my lawn looks great. Only difference is I dont use weed and feed, just straight turf builder. Instead I go over my lawn after mowing and spray any developing weeds with Ortho Weed-B-Gone.
Here is what I follow (and I have never had an issue)
April - Starter fertilizer (or step 1)
May - Regular turf builder
Late June - Liquid Turf Builder
Sept - Regular Turf Builder
Mid Oct - Winterguard
You dont have to worry about granuals burning your lawn until you are looking at 90 plus temps. Which is why i use liquid fertilizer in the summer.
