Are you going to edit this schedule because I would suggest copying and pasting it into a Word Document or if you know Excel you can do that too, but I would remove the fertilizer types such as XX-XX-XX as most customers don't know what these numbers mean and this is mainly for your information so you know what product to buy to put on your customer's lawn. You should be able to edit it to where it talks about the type of fertilizer you'll be using for each application stage in the year on your customer's lawn. If you gave it to a customer as its written you'd have a customer who's confused, as most people aren't aware of the different varieties of fertilizers, most just assume anything will work or simply don't care. Once you create the schedule, upload it on here so that we can make sure it looks like it should and either I or someone else can help you get it that way if need be.

i would not remove the numbers. i would reword that document, and send it out leaving the letters. It makes it seem like you know what you are talking about when they read it. But I stick to using the same fertilizers year round, like sweet green in january, 15-5-10 in february, 19-4-10 super turf in april... and so on. And i follow the same schedule every year. Doesnt change. I do soil test my yards every year and will make adjustments to the ones that need it.

Please view the attachments to see the effects of this fertilizing schedule, this is the first year i have fertilized this yard and this is 1 month to the day after the first treatment. It is my yard but we just moved in so dont mind the landscape fixing that as we speak.

Well i was going to attach them but it wont let me so i uploaded them to my site, so please view these links.

It probably wouldn't upload here because the file size is too big. Next time I'd suggest try making them a little smaller.
