It was always such a feeling of jealousy driving down the street and seeing that GREEN lawn.
SaferBrand Organic Lawn Care Program received.
I enjoy working in the yard, and I always seemed to have a nice lawn, but not that lawn that will invoke jealousy from your neighbors. One of the reasons for my lack of an amazing lawn is because since the kids were born, we have become very conscience of what we put on our lawn because the kids run around in the grass.
There are too many chemicals in most lawn care fertilizers and just too many unknowns. This is why we are excited about SaferBrand Organic Lawn Care Program.
Safer Brand organic lawn care products are organic and more importantly safe! I am going to talk about our experience with the Safer Brand Lawn Care Program, which is a full treatment set up for your lawn for the entire season. The kit contains 3 bags of Ringer Lawn Restore, 1 bag of Weed Prevention Plus, a soil thermometer, an application calendar and most importantly – with over 115 lbs of material – free shipping!
The instructions on the site recommend that those of here in Ohio start off with the first application of the Safer Brand Ringer Lawn Restore in April. We applied ours in the last week of April mainly because we are still expecting one last snowfall to sneak up on us until May 1st.
Application is very simple, just pour the fertilizer into your spreader, switch it to the proper dispensing setting, and spread it across your lawn. It is ideal to have a dry yard when you dispense the fertilizer, and then it is recommended to water it immediately to activate it.
The Lawn Restore Fertilizer is a controlled release fertilizer made up of organic materials, a blend of beneficial soil microorganisms which will help provide a quick green-up, promote strong, deep root development and make your lawn healthier, thicker, and more immune to weather conditions and lawn diseases. There is no manure in this and no manure odor, so there is no reason to hold your nose during and after application!
Once the ground warms up sometime in mid May, you are able to use your soil thermometer. Once the thermometer reads over 55 degrees, it is time to apply the Weed Prevention Plus.
This is an all natural corn gluten meal which contains natural substances that grow (good) bacteria and starve the weeds of the nutrients the weed’s roots need to grow. It acts as a pre-emergent herbicide causing the weed seedlings to die before their roots ever have a chance to become established.
Our next application will be in July. This application is the Ringer Lawn Restore which is the same as the first application. This will further strengthen the grass helping the roots further develop, make the lawn greener and thicker. Remember, a nice thick and robust lawn is able to choke out emerging weeds and stay healthy.
Finally, after consulting my included application calendar, I will apply the last dosage of the Ringer Lawn Restore in September to get my lawn ready for winter. Even though the thought of prepping for winter makes me sad, I can gain some happiness by realizing that my lawn will look great and be healthy next spring.
So far we have been very happy with our lawn, we have an area with new grass that has grown in great and has been weed free thanks to fertilizing it. Our existing lawn is much better than last year, and we are getting close to having that lawn that will make the neighbors envious, I am confident that we will be there by mid summer! Most importantly, we feel good and safe about having our kids enjoy the lawn knowing that using SaferBrand made up of all organic materials!
