  • to fertilize or not to fertilize

    i maintain a daycare here in georgia, the grass is really all weeds but there is some remnants of the zoysia sod.

    I want to fertilize (using liquid fert for bacpac sprayer) but i have to cut every week.

    Should i just apply fert after a cutting then?

    Apply fertilizer after cutting. I would use a hose end sprayer. The back-pack sprayer will wear you out. The hose end sprayer gives you better coverage and is much faster.

      what does the 2 or 1 represent in the formula and how are you getting the $ amountresult. and if you could help me out on the thread i put up in general talk...(to fertilize or not to fertilize)

      if you don't mindmuch.
      Hey how are you

      The 2 and 1 are measurements of the time it takes to do the job

      its based off of one hour so
      say my rate per hour is 50$
      the job takes 30 minutes
      30 is 1/2 of 60
      so..
      60/2 is equal to 30
      so if its half the time
      its half the hourly rate
      50/2 wich is 25

      now

      60/1 is equal to 60
      so 1 represents one full hour
      wich is equal to the whole 50$


      I know im not much of a teacher and i appologize for this. But ill try explaining it as best as i can.

      now if its supposed to take 2.5 hours your equation will be different

      its just 2.5*50 wich is equal to 125

      Basically to get the divisible numbers you divide the time into parts

      to get 45 minutes you know that 45 minutes is 3/4 of one hour
      there for one quarter is 15 minutes

      so say a job takes one hour and 15 minutes

      you take your hourly rate and multiply it by the time

      50*1.25

      its easier to explain in decimals and easier to do on calculators etc.

      I really hope this helps..maybe someone else can help me out..i know what to do i just dont know how to put it in words i suppose...anyways..i sure hope this helps and thanks for pming me
