If you are still struggling to achieve your dream lawn, the solution to your problems may be much easier than you think. Many lawn issues can be remedied by introducing superior grass seed varieties, such as Jonathan Green Black Beauty®, and others by learning how to improve the quality of your soil.
Jonathan Green has specialized in beautiful lawns since 1881. Six generations of the family have worked to perfect our genetically superior grass seed and our family of lawn and soil care products. Our products will transform every aspect of your lawn to help it thrive like never before and, with our New American Lawn Care Plan, caring for your lawn will be easier than ever.
Organic Soil Food
Lawns thrive in soil with slightly acidic to neutral pH levels that range from 6.2 to 7.0. When pH levels drop to between 4.0 to 6.0, weeds flourish and the grass becomes light green and spindly. When soil is too alkaline and compacted (pH 7.0 to 9.5), air, water and nutrients cannot reach the roots, and the grass will not grow properly.
Jonathan Green Organic Lawn Food 10-0-1 is a complex, organic lawn food that promotes strong grass growth. It can also rejuvenate a thin, stressed lawn by adding organic content to the soil. The easy-to-spread granules can be used on established and newly seeded lawns or when sodding.
Organic Lawn Food contains food-grade organic ingredients, such as feather meal, bone meal, blood meal, wheat shorts and molasses, which help to improve soil structure and the water holding capacity of the soil. Your lawn will also be better able to withstand environmental stress.
Key product features:
- Complex, all-organic lawn food
- Promotes strong grass growth
- Use on newly seeded and established lawns or when sodding
- Use in spring, summer or fall
Another excellent option is Jonathan Green Mag-I-Cal® Plus, a unique combination of our Mag-I-Cal® and Love Your Soil®. It will stimulate soil microbes, make the soil more alive and porous, enhance root development, and create a biologically healthy soil.
If your soil’s pH is too low, treat it with MAG-I-CAL® Plus for Acidic & Hard Soil. Our innovative formula contains calcium carbonate in a completely soluble form that is immediately available to adjust soil pH upwards. It can be applied the same day as the grass seed is spread.
When soil pH is too high, Mag-I-Cal® Plus for Alkaline & Hard Soil which contains sulfur and calcium sulfate dihydrate, will lower the pH, improve root penetration, and promote growth. It can be applied the same day as the grass seed is spread.
The inclusion of Love Your Soil® in the Mag-I-Cal® Plus product means it will help loosen and aerate compacted soils to improve root penetration, grass growth, and root mass. The all-natural, organic soil food also helps to stimulate soil microbial life by feeding it humic and fulvic acids, calcium, sulfur, iron, and molasses.
