With all the lawn products out there, sometimes it can be confusing to know exactly what your lawn needs and when. That's why it's so important to follow a balanced fertilizer program. It makes sure that your lawn gets just what it needs at each critical point in the season. Here at O'Toole's, we have four different fertilizer programs tailored to our Colorado lawns.
As Colorado's top selling organic, all year lawn program. WaterSaver is an organic, slow-release fertilizer made out of dried chicken manure. It's non-burning and you could even apply it without watering it in. WaterSaver contains a wetting agent to help water penetrate our tough clay soils. In addition, WaterSaver also contains mycorrhiaze. Mycorrhiaze are soil-borne micro-organisms that attach to the root systems of plants and allow them to absorb more nutrients and water. This will help your grass more efficiently utilize the water you give it and lower your water bill. It all combines to create a stronger, healthier more drought tolerant lawn.
The WaterSaver Program is a 4-step program includes one bag of WaterSaver SpringGreen + Iron (March - April), two bags of WaterSaver Lawn Food (May - August) and one bag of WaterSaver Winterizer (October) .
The Four Step includes the same balanced, fast-acting Colorado's Choice fertilizers that Denver gardeners have always trusted. It covers all the major feedings of the year and also has an early spring application of Crabgrass and Spurge Control. This is one of the most effective pre-emergent weed killers available. Crabgrass and Spurge Control works by creating a barrier just below the surface of soil that stops weed seeds before they sprout. It also feeds your lawn with a high-nitrogen 24-16-12 fertilizer to give you a quick spring green up. If you've had some problems with crabgrass or other annual weed grasses in the past, this is the program for you.
The Four Step contains 1 bag of Colorado's Choice Crabgrass and Spurge Control (March - April), 1 bag of Colorado's Choice Turf Food (May - June), 1 bag of Colorado's Choice Super Turf Food (July - August) and 1 bag of Colorado's Choice Winterizer (October - November) all for Plan PDF
The Five Step plan is similar to the Four Step. It includes all the most important feedings of the year, but also adds an extra bag of Colorado's Choice Crabgrass and Spurge Control. This refreshes the weed barrier in the soil and prevents any late season weeds from popping up. If you've had heavy weed problems in the past, the Five Step will help keep your lawn weed free
