Question #4: My neighbor next door wanted to improve his beach area last summer. So he hired a contractor to cut down and burn up all the hundred or so stately pine and oak trees on the shore. Then a great big grader arrived and graded their four foot ice dam down to nothing and then graded everything back flat to the house and deck. After they bulldozed the ashes from the burning of the trees into the lake, they hauled in about fifty truck loads full of rich, black dirt and spread it from the house to the shore with the grader. (My neighbor tells me that he bought the best black dirt he could find-he got it from some farmer down south-says it's full of cow manure and the farmer told him that the stuff is so rich it would grow hair on Jesse Ventura's head if applied with water). On top of this, sod was laid and it was watered and fertilized for about two months. Even though he built a brand new gazebo on the shore which now obstructs my view of the neighbor's shore and most of the lake for that matter, I can see that my neighbor now has the nicest lawn on the lake. My question is: What is the fertilizer my neighbor is using?
