Soil Test Help

New to organic lawn care...or lawn care in general.  I'm motivated to make this work the organic route and need a little help.

Based on the recommendations from many sites I got my soil tested and need some help with results.  Stats look like this, pH 7.6, Organic Matter 5.3%, Phosphorus 15 ppm and Potassium 207 ppm.  The recommendations from the extension office was to add nitrogen and phosphate in a 10-10-0 ratio. 

Will this help out my soil pH or should I consider adding some sulfur as well?  If so, how much sulfur would I need to lay down?

I agree. Here's the link: http://stoves2.com
