Make your lawn look perfect

Posted: Updated:

Gary: Is your lawn looking a little bad these days? Well, maybe you need to do a little maintenance. John says he has some ideas to make your lawn look perfect and the talk of the neighborhood.

John: Yes you just have to be careful in the hot months you know what you do. Now you don't have to be careful with this product, Milorganite, you can put it out anytime, wet, dry, doesn't make any difference. Of course if you get rain it will work faster. But this just Greens up, doesn't produce anymore growth. It makes don't mow more then already. So it works great You can put it on flower beds also. It works great, no burn, can't burn with it. 

Then for the people that really wanna green up, use ni-trate on the lawn. You can do it still in the hot weather. You put alot less of it. Instead of fifty pounds for a 5,000 square foot lawn, you going to put 10 pounds, that's how much less. Yep it'll  green it up, without producing a lot of growth.because you're not putting out a lot. But you're gonna get the green lush look you want at this time of year when it's hot.

Also we have another produce, this Aluminum Sulfate, works great. People that have a smaller lawn, you can get a small bag like this or buy a 50 pound bag. And this will also add nitrogen plus sulfer, which gives you your green up. Just remember the best thing to do with any of these products is, especially these two, is water well after you apply it to start working right away and so it doesn't stay on the leaves of your plants so you don't have any burn.
