The best way to manage lawn nutrition is to supply the turf with adequate levels of all nutrients except nitrogen. The growth of the lawn is then managed with nitrogen. The N-P-K ratio of lawn clippings is approximately 8:1:5. So when a fertilizer is applied, the ratio of the fertilizer should approximately be that. Where possible, fertilizer should be applied after spiking so that it can penetrate the lawn soil. Remember that growing grass is not about getting maximum growth but rather providing a lawn surface that is acceptable to the users.
The NPK ratio of lawn clippings is approximately 8:1:5. So when a fetilizer is added it should be added in this ratio. Culterra Lawn 8:1:5 (25) is manufactured ideally for this purpose.
