Complete Annual Organic Lawn Program (including summer booster)

Complete Annual Organic Lawn Program (including summer booster)

Description
This complete organic program is designed for lawns in regions of the US which have a longer growing season (warm-season grasses) and also for lawns which contain predominantly heavy-feeding Kentucky Blue Grass. The program provides organic weed control, a complete blend of essential nutrients, stress-resistance, and a boost for heavy feeding grasses.
Each order unit consists of the following products:
1 x 50 lb bag Weedban (organic weed control, delivered early spring)
1 x 50 lb bag Pro-Gro 5-3-4 (complete fertilizer, delivered mid-spring)
2 x 10gr packets of Stress-X (stress resistance builder, delivered late spring)
1 x 50 lb bag Pro-Booster 10-0-0 (booster for heavy feeders, delivered in early summer)
1 x 50 lb bag Pro-Start 2-3-3 (complete winterizing fertilizer, delivered early fall).
Calculate your lawn area and then order one unit for every 2,500 sq.ft. During the course of the season, we ship each product at the appropriate time of year for your zip code. We charge your credit card only at time of shipping.

How it works
Weedban inhibits the germination of weed seeds (follow directions for your geographic area).
Pro-Gro 5-3-4 provides all the slow-release nutrients your soil needs to remain healthy.
Stress-X builds the disease and drought resistance of your grass plants.
Pro-Booster 10-0-0 gives your lawn a boost in advance of hot, dry weather.
Pro-Start 2-3-3 prepares your lawn for winter and the following spring but providing hardiness and root development.

General usage
Apply to lawns with warm-season grasses in parts of the US with a longer growing season or to lawns which contain primarily Kentucky Blue Grass. Adjust application times for your part of the country and your type of grass. For more information, see our organic lawn care guide.

Directions for use
Use a drop spreader or broadcast spreader to apply the Weedban, Pro-Gro, Pro-Booster and Pro-Start products. After mixing the Stress-X with water, apply with a pressurized sprayer or a simple dial & spray hose-end attachment. Inexpensive spreaders and sprayers should be available at your local hardware store or garden center - or check out our "Tools" section on this site.
Apply these products in conjunction with organic mowing practices: cut high (at least 3"), mulch cut (let the clippings fall on the lawn), sharpen mower blades.

Advisories
As always, we recommend a soil test to determine the level of acidity (pH) and main nutrient groups. If test results indicate it, plan to add lime in appropriate quantities in the Fall.
Weedban also inhibits the development of grass seed. If you plan to reseed areas of your lawn in the spring, wait a good six weeks after applying Weedban before seeding.

Application rates
Apply the Weedban, Pro-Gro, Pro-Booster and Pro-Start at the rate of 20 lbs per 1,000 sq.ft. Apply the Stress-X at the rate one 10 gram packet per 1,500 sq.ft (after mixing with water as per instructions).
