Healthy, Lush Green Lawns
Feeding Your Lawn
- Feed the soil and the soil will make nutrients available when your plant needs them.
- Chemically engineered fertilizers force-feed plants resulting in rapid plants, resulting in rapid, weak growth that is highly suseptible to damage from insects, disease, and drought.
- You pay extra for this rapid growth with the coin of your labor in the additional mowings and with the coin of your purse in trying to combat problems caused by using them.
- Naturally cared for lawns are healthy lawns; they are better able to cope with attacks of their natural enemies.

Creating a Nutrient Rich Warehouse in Your Soil Today
Mix the following materials
- Per 1000 square feet: spread 30 cubic feet of compost and 5 quarts each of Lava Sand and Green Sand evenly over each 1000 square feet of lawn.
- Add Soil Conditioner: Use Grandpa Stover's recipe or try one of the fine pre-packaged organic products available at most retail garden stores.
- Repeat the nutrient rich warehouse formula above every 5 to 7 years or as needed.
- Subsequent Feedings: there are many excellent pre-mixed organic fertilizers available. Apply an annual spring & fall application per instructions on packaging.
