I de-thatched, aerated and overseeded my lawn two weeks ago. I live in southern Michigan. Temperatures are beginning to drop.
If you just reseeded two weeks ago and the lawn is still growing, then you can still apply the Essential Plus 1-0-1 fertilizer. One quart will treat 10,666 sq ft. You can apply as long as the turf is still growing.
