An excellent lawn fertilizer, Milorganite (6-2-0) contains 4% iron. Grass leaves take up this iron, giving them a deep green color. However, unlike high nitrogen fertilizers, iron does not make plants grow fast. The result is a lawn with the color you desire without excessive growth (and mowing!).
For the best part, this deep green color stays with the lawn through hot, dry summer months. Plus, because this iron is organically complex, it does not stain concrete, like your drives, patios, sidewalks or other areas. Ideal for trees, shrubs and ornamentals, too! Pelleted for easy application. Will not burn and safe for the environment. 50 lb. bag covers 3,100 sq. ft.
#1 Japanese Beetle Control! Milky Spore (Bacillus popilliae) targets and discriminately works to attack the white grubs of Japanese Beetles. Spreads naturally as each infected beetle larvae dies, decomposes and releases billions of new spores into the soil.
According to the USDA, milky spore disease can suppress the development of large beetle populations. Not harmful to beneficial insects, birds, bees, pets or humans. Will not affect wells, ponds or streams.
