Best Answer

Most fertilizers will contain some amount of phosphates and nitrates. Both of which are food for algae. The best method is to have the fertilizer applied using a drop spreader (not a rotary spreader). Water the fertilizer into the lawn/garden areas. Prevent walking on the fertilized area for several days. If phosphates get high in the pool/spa then you can use a phosphate remover to lower the quantity in the water.
