Grow a Green, Healthy & Safe Lawn
Like any other plant, grass needs good nutrition for proper growth and to be green and healthy. Grass requires three macronutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. These nutrients play an essential role in plant health and must be available in sufficient quantities. Your grass cannot grow strong, lush, and healthy without them.
· Nitrogen promotes green growth. It encourages photosynthesis and protein development. Plants with adequate nitrogen typically show healthy, vigorous new growth, dark green foliage, and increased leaf production.
· Phosphorus helps grass develop strong root networks to anchor plants and absorb a variety of soil minerals. This nutrient also helps plants grow to their natural, expected size.
· Potassium is critical for cell division in plants; it helps grass grow strong stalks. It also helps create a strong root system and aids in sugar and starch (energy) development. Grass seems to like carbohydrates as much as people do!
Fertilizers sold in the United States are required to list the ratio of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium on the label. It's expressed as N-P-K. For example, fertilizer labeled as 8-11-26 has 8% nitrogen, 11% phosphorus, and 6% potassium.
The sources of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium in fertilizers vary greatly. Most common fertilizers contain inexpensive, synthetic, and chemical ingredients. Synthetic fertilizers are chemically processed to make the nutrients immediately available to plants. Unfortunately, what is not absorbed by grass runs off into the watershed, negatively impacting the health of streams, lakes, and oceans. Many communities have banned chemical and synthetic fertilizers because of the array of problems this causes.
Our founder Bill Muskopf, a chemist and avid gardener developed two lawn fertilizers that use only natural and safe ingredients. Both are the gourmet meal your grass craves.
His Bill's Perfect Fertilizer Liquid (6-11-5) is formulated with:
Hydrolyzed Organic Calcium
Vitamin B 12
Bill’s Perfect Lawn Fertilizer Liquid is sprayed onto the blades of grass, a process known as foliar feeding. Nutrients are absorbed through plant pores, called stomata, and moved throughout the plant, from leaf tips to the ends of the longest roots. Our Hose-End Sprayer makes feeding your lawn with Bill’s Perfect Lawn Fertilizer Liquid quick and easy.
Our granular formula of Bill's Perfect Lawn Fertilizer (8-3-5) is made with:
Composted Chicken Manure
Steamed Bone Meal
Bill's Perfect Lawn Fertilizer Granular is applied with a traditional garden spreader. The pellets break down with water and rain and provide a slow release of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium.
Apply either of our Bill's Perfect Lawn Fertilizers every two months during the growing season. You’ll enjoy a beautiful, healthy lawn that is safe for your family, friends, pets, and our planet.
