LAWN TIP: Feeding your lawns in the Spring strengthens roots, which is a good start before the heavy growing season. It's always a good rule of thumb to feed your lawn around the first time it needs to be mowed.

Scotts Foundation Soil Improve - ACE EXCLUSIVE!

Over time, as moisture evaporates from our soil it can become compacted and lose oxygen. This kills off many of the beneficial micro-organisms and nutrients that help grass and plants grow. So how can a Soil Conditioner help you? 

  • Reduces Soil Compaction
  • Boosts Water & Nutrient Retention
  • Supports Microbial Activity

We asked our EXPERTS:

What is Milorganite?
An organic nitrogen fertilizer composed primarily of heat-dried microbes.
What is Milorganite used for?
Milorganite is an all-purpose fertilizer used on lawns, shrubs, trees, flowers, vegetables, and golf courses.
When can Milorganite be applied?
Milorganite can be applied any time during the growing season and it is suitable for any climate.
Does Milorganite need to be watered in to work?
No. It is not necessary to water in Milorganite for it to work. Milorganite does not contain any soluble salts (which can burn turf) but relies on natural microbes in the soil to break down nutrients. Watering in Milorganite will ensure that the fertilizer achieves soil contact earlier and speed up the fertilizing process, but it is not necessary.
