Green-Up Summer Lawns

Written by Chris Campbell

Does your lawn look “tired” and yellowish from the stress of the summer heat, humidity and/or lack of rain?

You can apply an iron product, such as Milorganite or Iron-Rich to green it up! These organic fertilizers are low in nitrogen and contain iron and sulfur that are easily absorbed by grass blades to give your lawn a deep green color. However, unlike high nitrogen fertilizers, iron does not make plants grow faster. The result is a lawn with the color you desire without the excessive growth, thus less mowing. Also these organic, low nitrogen fertilizers eliminate the potential to “burn” your lawn when applied in the heat of the summer months. So start greening up your lawn today!
