What Type of Fertilizer Should I Use?
Soil nutrient test by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County can help determine what type of fertilizer should be need, and what levels of each nutrient to use.

Organic, slow release fertilizers release nitrogen slowly over time and because they are less likely to reach water ways should be used to decrease the chance of the nitrogen running off into the soil.

Fertilizers containing phosphorous should **only** be used when establishing a new lawn or if a soil test shows the phosphorous levels in the lawn are low. The amount of phosphorous is labeled on all fertilizer products
