Here’s what I’m throwing down this year, in order…
10. Pro-Mate Barricade 0.22% Plus Fertilizer 0 – 0 – 7
This is my early Spring pre emergent application. Infested with Poa Annua last year, I need to get this down before the soil temps hit 55.
9. Lesco 18-24-12 Starter Fertilizer
We’re having a frigid winter so far, and I need to get this lawn juiced as quickly as possible. This fertilizer is sure to get things growing, and growing green, quickly.
Gotta get your organics down early, too. Feed your soil to get the microbes active and setup the rest of 2019 for success
7. Hi-Yield Weed and Grass Stopper with Dimension Herbicide
I got crushed wit Poa in my backyard last year. I also saw crabgrass in my prized front yard later on in the season. This second application of pre emergent should do the trick. Plus Dimension has a selective weed killer that can help destroy any unwanted grassy weeds that decide to pop up.
If I can get my hands on this stuff again, I’m going for it. I hate liquid fertilizers, especially for 18,000 square feet of lawn. but this stuff is well worth it.
Unless there’s a shortage again, then I’ll look for another organic alternative like Ringer Lawn restore or Jonathan Green 10-0-1 Lawn Food.
If you never heard of this stuff before, stay tuned for some new Ketodoshush reviews.
3. Jonathan Green Green-Up Lawn Food for Seeding and Sodding 12-18-8
There’s a 99% chance that I’ll be overseeding again this year, and Jonathan Green never lets me down.
2. Jonathan Green MAG-I-CAL Plus for Lawns in Acidic + Hard Soil
Being in Zone 6a, I have both clay and acidic soil. If I can swing the cost, Jonathan Green gets the nod here. If not, cheaper pellet lime from big box stores will have to do.
1. Jonathan Green Winter Survival Fall Lawn Food 10-0-20
This has been my old faithful for the past three seasons. Knock on wood, I attribute this stuff to allowing my lawn to survive the winter and come out of dormancy quicker than ever before. A must-have.
