Thin turf, bare spots, and poor growth are the main reasons that weeds are able to invade desirable turf areas. The professionals at Jonathan Green offer organic weed control tips to tame even the weediest garden.
Our ancestor and founder, Jonathan Green, began experimenting with turf grass in England in 1881 to create lawn bowling greens in the border country between England and Scotland. He chose turf grass varieties with uniform leaf texture, good color and superior wear tolerance, and went on to construct lush bowling greens in towns such as Chorley and Kirkby Malham in northern England. We continue to build on the foundation he laid years ago.
Today, Jonathan Green is a major supplier of grass seed, organics, and traditional fertilizer and weed, insect and disease control products to both independent retailers and professional lawn care markets. We also have our own turf grass breeding program where genetically superior turf grasses, such as those found in our Black Beauty® grass seed mixtures, have been developed.
Controlling Weeds Organically
Jonathan Green has two, very effective, organic weed control and lawn food products that can be used by lawn owners.
Organic Weed Preventer plus Lawn Food. Jonathan Green’s Organic Weed Preventer helps prevent the growth of certain broadleaf (dandelions, clover, chickweed, etc.) and grassy weeds (crabgrass, etc.). It contains a patented, highly concentrated corn gluten that prevents many of these common weeds. In fact, some studies show that our corn gluten provides weed prevention that rivals some synthetic products.
Organic Weed Preventer plus Lawn Food greens up the lawn quickly and releases organic proteins into the soil to encourage root development. Apply it to the lawn in the early spring and again in later spring, summer and fall, but do not apply grass seed for 60-90 days after applying this product.
Jonathan Green Organic Lawn Food is a complex, fully organic lawn fertilizer that promotes strong grass growth. The homogenous, easy-to-spread granules can be used on established and newly seeded lawns or when sodding. It also helps to rejuvenate thin, stressed lawns by adding organic content to the soil.
Containing high-energy protein meals (instead of low-energy manures), Organic Lawn Food provides a deep, metered feeding of turf. It helps to improve soil structure and the soil’s water holding capacity so that your lawn will be better able to withstand environmental stress. Organic Lawn Food is also fortified with iron to enhance the greening power of the fertilizer…without ANY phosphates.
By following Jonathan Green’s revolutionary New American Lawn Plan, you will learn how to get to the root of any lawn problems, instead of merely battling the symptoms, such as weeds and insects. Our goal is to feed your lawn AND your soil and encourage your Black Beauty lawn to thrive.
