  • New Law/Restrictions:Use slow-release fertilizer only through May in Pinellas County
  • In Print: Sunday, March 11, 2012
  • COUNTYWIDE
  • Remember, go Slow-release when fertilizing
  • Planning to fertilizer your lawn or flower beds soon? Then take it slow — as in slow-release nitrogen. Under Pinellas County's fertilizer ordinance, only fertilizers containing a minimum of 50 percent slow-release nitrogen can be used from October to May. Slow-release products (also call controlled release or timed release) feed your lawn or plants gradually, nourishing them for a longer period of time. They also are better for the environment, since they are more likely to be absorbed by the plants and less likely to run off when it rains and pollute bays, lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. Not sure how to calculate the slow-release percentage? Don't worry. Garden centers may legally sell only landscape fertilizers that meet the 50 percent slow-release requirement. Look for products with no phosphorus too, since Pinellas County soils already contain abundant amounts of phosphorous. Calculate the right amount of fertilizer for your yard at

  • What this means for your lawn- No Fertilizing between June 1, 2011  to October 1, 2011.
  • If you do fertilize your lawn during the non-black out dates, make sure there is no phosphates in your grass fertilizer. Only new sod needs any phosphates.
  • Check your local restrictions, flowering plants/ vegtables still need phosphates
  • Flowers/veggie fertilizer- (must be a 4:1 ration for nitrogen to phosphates)       exa 8-2-6 would be usable.
  • Use slow-release nitrogen
  • Only water 1/4in (about 20 mins or less to prevent fertilizer burn).
