Stewart, our resident fertilizer consultant, recommends using the rates below:
To further simplify the application rate, divide the space into a 10×10 area, which is the equivalent of 100 square feet and apply 2.2lbs-27lbs directly under the canopy of the palm tree or over lawn area. Of course, smaller palms will need less fertilizer, which you can apply by hand (don’t forget gloves!) or a hand spreader.
Pro Tip: Your application rate should be based on the amount of square feet under the palm canopy or square footage of zoysia sod
