Q: I heard you talking on your radio show about a colleague who uses Milorganite twice a year on his lawn. I’d like to give that a try on my bermuda.
A: My friend Tim Bowyer, turfgrass expert with the Super-Sod company, is the one who said he uses Milorganite and has a great-looking zoysiagrass lawn. Zoysiagrass does fine with this type of slow release fertilizer. On the other hand, bermudagrass needs more fertilizer than zoysia . I think you should apply Milorganite to a bermuda lawn three times per year for best results.
