Recommendations:

Recommended pH:6.0 to 6.5. If the pH is less than 6.0, see Lime Table B and the soil depth adjustment table that immediately follows the lime tables.
Nitrogen:4-7 pounds nitrogen (N) per 1000 square feet. (High rate will be needed on irrigated fairways and tees, and if clippings are removed).
Magnesium:

If soil test Mg level is low and lime is recommended, use dolomitic limestone.

For warm season grasses: Per 1000 square feet apply 1 pound of nitrogen (N), phosphate (P2O5), and potash (K2O) when spring growth begins and again in June. Example: Use a 1 to 1 to 1 ratio fertilizer such as 10 pounds of 10-10-10. Apply 1 pound of nitrogen and potash in July and September. Example: Use a 1 to 0 to 1 ratio fertilizer such as 7 pounds of 15-0-15.

For cool season grasses: Per 1000 square feet, apply 1 pound of nitrogen, phosphate, and potash in February and September. Example: Use a 1 to 1 to 1 ratio fertilizer such as 10 pounds of 10-10-10. Apply 1 pound of nitrogen and potash in May and November. Example: Use a 1 to 0 to 1 ratio fertilizer such as 7 pounds of 15-0-15.
