They tell me I need 25-0-20 (2.5lb per 1000 ft per year)
Can anyone tell me how to go about getting this as I have called garden centers they only have the general use fertilizers and fertilizer suppliers are looking for 50lb minimum order.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

cardy_c said:Hi All - thanks a lot for all the replies. I am located in SE Florida, and I was hoping to start the lawn within the next week or so. I have found a local supplier with a 50lb of something close enough they tell me I guess if stored properly it will keep me going for a while. I attached an actual snip of the soil test results, my interpretation of it is to apply about 4.5 lbs per 1000 sq foot per year. My lawn is actually about 1200 Sq Ft so I am rounding it down to 1000 (so I don't burn it) and I was going to apply about 1lb 4 times a year. Starting with 1 lb before the seeds go in.
Does that seem about right? Any thoughts and advise would be greatly appreciated.
