When you are looking for the best lawn fertilizer to thicken grass, look no further than Jonathan Green. Read on for our top picks.

At Jonathan Green, lush green lawns are our business. We have been perfecting the art of green lawns since 1881 and have continued this tradition for six generations. We employ the latest scientific technology and research to ensure that we have the best products on the market, so you end up with a strong, healthy, dark-green lawn.

Fertilizer Solution for Early Spring

Apply Veri-Green Crabgrass Preventer plus Lawn Fertilizer in early spring. It controls crabgrass before and after it germinates and contains the newest technology available, named Dimension® Crabgrass Control Herbicide. Dimension® is clear, odorless and colorless, and won’t stain your hands, walkways, driveways, or the floor of your garage.

Fertilizer Solution for Late Spring

Apply Veri-Green Weed & Feed Lawn Fertilizer in late spring. This combination of lawn food and weed control feeds lawns for up to three months and will tackle more than 250 broadleaf weeds, including dandelions, chickweed, plantain, and clover, with a three-way herbicide formula that kills weeds down to the root.

Fertilizer Solution for Summer

An excellent fertilizer option during the hot, dry summer months (or during late spring or early fall after the soil temperature has warmed) is Jonathan Green’s Organic Lawn Food, a high-quality lawn fertilizer that is made from all-organic food sources. It will provide excellent nutrition to your lawn for 8 to 10 weeks. It also helps improve soil structure and the soil’s water-holding capacity, making it the ideal choice for revitalizing thinning or stressed lawns. Jonathan Green Organic Lawn Food can be used on established and newly seeded lawns or when sodding.

Fertilizer Solutions for Fall

Many broadleaf weeds are still actively growing in the fall, so this is a great time to use a product like Jonathan Green Lawn Weed Control. The improved three-way formula with Trimec® provides broadleaf weed control of more than 200 lawn weeds, including dandelion, clover, chickweed, purslane, plantain, oxalis, spurge, etc. This straight weed control product does not contain any fertilizer, so there’s no possibility of overfeeding and burning the grass. 

Fertilizer Solutions for Winter

In September or October, prepare your lawn for the winter. Winter Survival Fall Lawn Fertilizer is designed to keep your lawn fed through the season so that it’s healthy enough to fend off late winter/early spring turf diseases, such as pink or gray snow mold. Apply it in September and again in November near Thanksgiving.  These two feedings will thicken your lawn, promote root growth to help protect it from winter stress, and store nutrients for the spring.
