A Simple Organic Lawn Maintenance program

We've come up with a simple Lawn Maintenance program for our customers needs.

(There are other things that can be done as well, such as testing the soil Ph level and nutrient content, raking/thatching/aerating in the early spring) (Mulching when cutting, keeping your lawnmower blade sharp and cutting your grass no shorter than 3")

The Following is an all natural and organic program that I believe will give a very nice start to you growing season... The Neptune's Harvest Fish/seaweed can be applied directly through a Fertilizer injector!
I hope this is of some help to you.
Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have.

Our Best to you and yours for a happy and healthy NEW YEAR !!!

Corn Gluten Meal ( High in Nitrogen 8-2-4)

This product is designed for use on established turf grass and lawns as a natural pre-emergent herbicide and a slow release fertilizer. It is important that the product is used on established lawns and plants only and is applied early enough to control germinating weed seeds. The product is most effective when applied at a minimum of twice a year, in early spring and in the fall to control germinating annual weeds. The product performs best when an extended drying period follows the initial watering after application.

Iowa State University published its first study on corn gluten meal as a lawn supplement in 1991. Corn gluten meal is high in nitrogen, which promotes a quick green-up on your yard. Corn gluten meal also is effective as a weed preventative. Apply very early in the spring, before weed seeds have
a chance to sprout and again in the fall. Apply 15 lbs. per 1,000 square feet for weed prevention, and nitrogen enrichment. Corn Gluten Meal is available from under the brand name:Concern Corn Gluten Weed Prevention Plus 8-2-4
** Do not Use when seeding or over seeding lawn.

Kelp Meal

Kelp ensures maximum retention of the delicate plant growth compounds found in freshly harvested kelp A multifunctional formulation, which stimulates plant growth, increases stress tolerance and provides a food source for beneficial soil microorganisms.

It will add organic matter to your soil and help it retain moisture. It will also enhance healthy root growth. Kelp Meal will keep your lawn healthy and green, even through drought periods.

APPLICATION: For gardens, till the Kelp Meal in as soon as the soil can be worked in the spring. For perennial crops, apply at the end of dormancy.
