For Your Lawn
One of the best lawn fertilizers to put down right now is Colorado's Choice WaterSaver. WaterSaver is an organic lawn food made right here in Colorado specially for Colorado lawns. It is great in the hot weather for three reasons:
1. Low, Slow-Release Nitrogen - During the hottest part of summer, most of the common lawn grasses like bluegrass, perennial ryegrass and tall fescue, start to go dormant. During this time, they don't want a high-nitrogen fertilizer, which is over-stimulating and stressful to the lawn. Slow-release nitrogen is only available when the grass needs it. It will still provide your lawn with the nutrition it needs, but not too much to stress it out.
2. Wetting Agent - WaterSaver contains a wetting agent, just like Revive. A wetting agent works in the same way soap does, allowing water to penetrate deeper places than it could on its own. This means that more water will be available at the root zone where your lawn needs it. This helps your lawn more efficiently utilize the water it's given, which is especially important during the hot, dry summer.
3. Mychorriaze - Mycorrhiaze are microorganisms that attach to the root systems of plants, allowing their hosts to take up more water and nutrients from the soil. This helps your lawn establish a strong root system that will make sure your lawn has all the nutrition and water that it needs during the stressful summer.
