Early Summer Application
Plus Lawn Food with GreenSmart
May 15th to June 15th
This step takes a little planning and timing. It is used to kill weeds that are actively growing in the lawn, not as a preventive. Do not get anxious and apply when you see the dandelions first appear. If you use it then, you will only kill the dandelions. 85% of the weeds that will grow will appear at a much later time. Follow directions as follows: mow your lawn a few days in advance, watch the weather closely so that there are a couple days with no rain anticipated. Apply when grass is wet, usually early morning dew works fine, or sprinklers. The product must stay dry for at least 24-48 hours while sitting atop the lawn (this allows the chemical to get into the system of the weeds). Then you will need to water it in thoroughly to activate the fertilizer.
ALL SEASON LAWN FOOD
SPRING OR SUMMER
Apply Around Memorial Day
Safe for kids and pets. All Espoma Organic Lawn Products are specifically formulated to optimize the help of the lawn, and provide 2.5 times more slow release nitrogen (SRN) than a conventional lawn program. All Season Lawn Food also contains Bio-tone Microbes that help make nutrients more available to your lawn. These microbes will help promote faster greening, deeper roots, and improved soil structure. Won’t burn lawns or leach out of soil. Provides long lasting nutrition.
This is to give you a good fertilizing to stimulate the grass during the hot summer months. At this point you should have your lawnmower raised to at least 3 inches, and if drought conditions are occuring, wait until there is some rain before you apply. Simply follow the directions on the bag for spreader settings, and water in thoroughly after application to activate the fertilizer. This is also a perfect time to put down any insecticide for surface feeding insects such as ants, spiders, fleas, chinch bugs, sod webworms and cutworms. Dursban is recommended control for surface feeding insects because it will not harm earthworms, which are beneficial to your soil. Note: Space this step at least 4 weeks from the 2-Way Weed & Feed so that the lawn is not over-fertilized.

EARTH SCIENCE FAST ACTING™ LIME
(or pelletized lime)
Pelletized lime should be applied every other year (approximately 15 lbs. Per 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.
Encap Fast Acting™ Lime helps raise soil pH, significantly reducing problem areas while creating a better soil environment for your lawn. It uses only the highest purity mined calcium carbonate available. And as always, it’s safe for children and pets with super easy application.
