Natural Pre-emergent Weed Control
Tame those weeds!
Corn Gluten Meal is a natural weed and feed fertilizer. It should be broadcast to prevent grassburs, crabgrass, and other annual weeds that germinate from seed. The key is to broadcast the material before the weed seeds germinate. In February, apply corn gluten meal as a pre-emergent herbicide to reduce the number of warm season weeds in your turf.
MicroLife™ Humates Plus
Concentrated compost in a bag.
Tremendous soil improver and plant nutritional booster. Excellent for reducing plant water use and is used extensively on turfgrass areas. Can be used as a fertilizer too. Inexpensive and easy to spread. This is an amazing soil conditioner and greens plants quickly. Loosens clay soils better than gypsum and is cheaper to use. It is also used to revitalize beds. You will also find a big reduction in annual weed problems.
