Now's the time to feed your lawn.

Is your lawn showing some summer stress?  You can help reduce the effect of summer’s heat, by applying Fertilome’s Lawn Food Plus Iron now. Fertilome’s Lawn Food Plus Iron contains a slow release nitrogen and chelated iron, to green your lawn now and keep it green through the rest of summer. Chelated iron is an important element of this fertilizer, because it allows your grass to take up iron it normally cannot get from the soil.

Correct watering  will also help your lawn. Watering longer and less frequently develops a deeper root system, enabling your lawn to better withstand the rigors of late summer. Whether you’re using a sprinkler system or hand watering, it’s important to know how much water your lawns getting. Pick up a simple rain gauge and measure the amount of water your lawn is getting.  The most efficient time to water is early morning, before sunrise. It’s cooler and less windy, so there’s less evaporation.

Now is also the time to add some Revive®. Revive® acts to help break down the surface tension and allow water to penetrate better. The water you apply becomes more efficient. Revive can also help the lawn take up more of the naturally existing elements in your soil; zinc and iron, for example.
Revive® is available in liquid and granular. They both work. Choose the one that is easier for you to apply. Use Revive® twice a year, spring and now.
