What To Do Next and When To Do It

Next Application

FALL, AUGUST 29th – SEPTEMBER 12th, LABOR DAY

This is the RECOVERY/REPAIR step! The MOST IMPORTANT step!

Some additional things that can be done at this time
  • Ok, judgment time. How’s the grass looking? Good? If it looks good throw down your milorganite and call it good. Looking like it could use some help? Then it’s time to overseed! Have the lawn aerated, throw down grass seed (by spreader or by hand), throw down the starter fertilizer, then the milorganite. This will introduce new seeds to the lawn, will fill in thin spots, crowd out weeds and older grass strains and make your lawn stronger than ever next season!
  • If you are overseeding, consider scheduling another mechanical aeration just before.
  • Thatch layer thick? Power rake the yard as well.
  • All of this should be done the same day, aeration/power raking can be done a few days before.
  • Decided against overseeding? If you have bad weed issues, consider throwing down another application of pre-emergent.

How To Use This Guide

I know, I know… your yard is different.

You’ve tried everything and nothing has worked. Your yard was planted over an ancient graveyard, cursed, no hope.

TRY THIS PROGRAM! It doesn’t matter what shape the yard is in; if there’s turf there, and you have a little patience, you WILL see results. Once you get in a routine with this program, the spot areas and specific issues can be addressed if needed. But know this; this program was designed to address almost every common lawn issue and keep it from coming back. Follow the applications, don’t start next year, START NOW!

Jump In and Let’s Get To Work!

You will see a date range with each step. Whatever date you are closest to, start there and never look back. All of the applications in each step are designed to be done in one day. Some steps take very little time, other steps will have you applying 3, 4, even 5 products at once. Take your time, make sure and apply these products evenly and you will be thrilled with the outcome.

BE PATIENT! Grass is resilient and is easy to take care of once you know what it needs; sun, water and nutrients. This guide focuses on maximizing those three things.

This is not an overnight fix, but it is the correct fix. You will see improvement within a few weeks but achieving the perfect lawn is a process that could take a few seasons to achieve, STICK WITH IT! Even the most problematic yards are lush and beautiful by season three. Have fun with it!!

A NOTE ON THE OPTIONAL N-EXT Applications – I love these products but DO NOT recommend them for beginners. They are messy, more difficult to apply and require a but more knowledge on how to use them properly. Skip them if you are just starting out, once you get the program down, add them in if you want a little more effectiveness. The program works beautifully without them.
