4 min read

Synthetic chemical fertilizers can cause pets to have gastrointestinal problems if they eat the grass or spend a lot of time rolling about on the lawn. If you are looking for pet safe lawn fertilizer, Jonathan Green has some great tips.

About Us

The Jonathan Green name has represented genetically superior grass seed, innovation, integrity, determination, and a commitment to excellence since 1881. Today, six generations later, we remain committed to producing superior lawn and garden products.

We are leaders in organics and have developed an environmentally sound approach to lawn care called the New American Lawn. This Plan combines our Black Beauty® grass seed mixtures with organic and traditional soil amendments, lawn fertilizers and control products that feed your lawn AND your soil so air, water and nutrients get absorbed by the grass plants.

Organic Fertilizer

Jonathan Green Organic Lawn Food 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. It will also help your lawn withstand environmental stress.

Children and pets may re-enter and use the lawn area right after application of organic fertilizer products.

Key product features:

  • Complex, all organic lawn food
  • Can be used on established or newly seeded lawns or when sodding
  • Can be used in spring, summer or fall
  • Promotes strong grass growth
  • Pet-friendly and safe to use where children play

The organic approach to lawn care takes time. Be patient, since nature needs time to break down nutrients. With continued use, your lawn will improve and thrive.

Jonathan Green Love Your Soil® is an all-natural, organic soil food that contains humic and fulvic acids, calcium, sulfur, iron, and molasses, that will loosen and aerate the soil. It will also stimulate soil microbes, make the soil more alive and porous, enhance root development, and create a biologically healthy soil. 

Love Your Soil® can be applied the same day as grass seed and works best when the soil temperature is at least 55°F or warmer, which is normally April – October. It is environmentally friendly and safe to use around people and pets.

Traditional Fertilizer

Jonathan Green Veri-Green Weed & Feed Lawn Fertilizer controls 250 types of broadleaf weeds while feeding your lawn with 35% slow-release nitrogen fertilizer. It feeds the lawn for up to three months while killing weeds down to the root. Apply Veri-Green Weed & Feed in the spring and fall when weeds are actively growing.

In order to penetrate the weeds and kill them faster, it should be applied to damp leaves and should stay on them for as long as possible. In order to work properly, they should not be watered in.

Avoid mowing your lawn or otherwise disturbing it for 48 hours after application. During this time, the chemical control will have moved from the plant leaves to the roots. Wait three days after spreading and the lawn area will be safe for people and pets to re-enter.
