Greenview Lawn Fertilizers

Here at Dayton’s, we suggest Greenview lawn fertilizers with GreenSmart technology. Below are the suggested spreader settings for each of the 4 steps plus the starter fertilizer as of the fall of 2017:


Pelletized lime should be applied every other year (approximately 15 lbs./1,000 ft²) once you have your soil pH to its optimum level, which is between 6.0 and 6.5. A soil test should be taken to determine where your soil pH is now. Be sure to keep a two week separation between lime and fertilizers containing Nitrogen, because lime and nitrogen cancel each other out.   The best time to apply lime is around November 15th.
