newbie, help needed!
I recently fired my lawn care service and since spring is here i also hope for a nice lawn. I live in Abilene texas have and have an unknown type of st augustine grass which is thin and in need of help. The soil here is clay based and unknown if it would support organics? after reading a several posts i decided to apply soybean meal mixed with alfa alfa pellets. I applied 50lbs of each in hope of giving it a good boost. The yard has not been treated until now. My concern is, are there microbes in the soil that will benefit from the feeding or should i have first layed compost? all and any help is greatly appreciated!
