Just because the State Fair is around the corner and the school supplies are out at Target, doesn’t mean the MN lawn care season is over. In fact, there’s still plenty you can do to keep your lawn looking lush, while ensuring that next year’s turf will be terrific too! Come on — get up off your grass and fertilize!
But first, a few words of caution before you run out and buy a big old bag of chemicals intended to make your grass green. When applied at this point in the season, chemical compounds could potentially do more harm than good. That’s because the hot temps and direct sunlight could combine with the fertilizer to fry your lawn. And of course, toasted turf is not what you’re going for. If you’re intent on a chemical fertilizer, it’s best to have a professional apply it to lessen the chances of damage. However, you might want to consider the alternative.
At Rock Solid, we recommend you use organic fertilizer. We prefer Milorganite simply because it gives our customers’ lawns that “let’s-go-play-9- holes-at-Pebble-Beach-golf-course” look everybody’s after.
We’re not exaggerating either. Groundskeepers have been using Milorganite on golf courses since 1926, so it must be working. And because it’s organic, it’s eco-friendly so it won’t burn plants, but instead, nourishes the soil with essential nutrients like calcium, iron and zinc. It’s convenient too, because the slow-release formula doesn’t have to be watered in like chemical fertilizers. But most importantly, Milorganite is safe and non-toxic with no pesticides, so kids and pets can continue on enjoying the yard without any worries.
Application is simple and easy for you, or for your lawn pros at Rock Solid to do for you. Simply give us a call at 763-398-0739 to schedule an appointment. We’d be happy to have you seeing green for the rest of the summer.
Go ahead, get up off your grass and fertilize. Oh, and if Tiger Woods shows up and asks to play through, you should probably let him.
