ANA-LYNC SOIL TESTING WAS DONE PRIOR TO THE PROJECT. Pre-sodding inputs of calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and micronutrients were applied to the soil according to test results.
Sod was cut at ½ inch and laid on October 15th.
Additionally, 5 lbs. per 1,000 of EON 75 was applied, half into the soil before the sod was laid, half applied to the turf after sodding. Also applied to the soil before sodding was ½ lb. of nitrogen from Assure 7-7-7
Eon 75 is an organic, long-term soil conditioner containing 75% purified humic acids. Aeration biologically, it regulates water movement in the soil and flocculates soil particles while stimulating microbial proliferation.
First spray was made on Oct.25th, then every 7 days thereafter for a total of 4 spray applications.
The first 3 sprays were Astron, Knife Plus, Glycosyn*, ProteSyn, and Potassium Nitrate.
