When purchasing 1 Stop Turf 18-0-8, get a rough estimate of the area that is going to be fertilized. Measuring a rectangular or square shaped area of turf is usually simple. If you have an irregularly shaped area to fertilize, create a rough estimate based on an approximated rectangle or square shape. Whether from an exact shape or estimated shape, multiply the length times the width to get the square footage. This will help you purchase the correct amount.
Before application, be sure to look at the weather forecast. In coastal Florida, the weather is unpredictable. However, it is still a good rule of thumb is to fertilize when you will most likely have a 24 – 36 hour window without rain. This will reduce the likelihood that you will need to reapply. It also ensures that the surrounding environment will not be affected by fertilizer that washes away due to heavy rains.
Regardless of your landscape, 1 Stop Turf 18-0-8 is an ideal solution for your fertilizing needs. While this can be applied by homeowners or professionals, it is important that professionals applying fertilizer have the appropriate commercial license for fertilizing. Whether you are a professional or a do-it-yourselfer, it also very important to stay up-to-date about fertilizer application ordinances.
