Lawn slow to green
I live in southeastern Pennsylvania. I had Tall Fescue installed on a new property in 2011.
Was very slow to green in spring of 2012. Had a soil sample submitted and my numbers were in good range. Started an organic program in May 2012. Put alfalfa pellets down every three weeks all summer and fall. Lawn looked nice and green but still had alot of dry yellow grass underneath.
Last month put down alfalfa pellets and yesterday ( april 10th) i applied 10 bags of milorganite on 25,000 sq ft of grass.
Took a walk with wife last night in an adjacent neighborhood and noticed several lawns thAt were full and as green as could be. Why doesnt our lawn look like that???? - i heard several times....
These lawns look green and all the grass is standing straight up. My grass has some green but a ton of dormant looking grass that looks like straw underneath.
Is it possible they have kbg and it just greens quicker?
Is their soil just that much better?
Any thoughts would be appreciAted....
