Will Not Burn Your Lawn When Used as Directed: At Purely Organic Products we believe that plant and garden care products should be good for plants, and safe for pets and people when used as directed. Our Lawn Food is made with natural ingredients, rather than harsh chemicals and mineral salts, so it won't burn or yellow your grass when used as directed. It is convenient and family friendly with no restrictions on re-entry time (for pets or people) after application.
What to Put in It & What to Leave Out: One of the first decisions we made when developing our Lawn Food was what NOT to put in it. With more than 30 years in the lawn care business we knew that many popular fertilizer products were made with harsh chemicals, manure and even bio-solids (organic materials resulting from the treatment of domestic sewage – yes, you're reading that right).
We have picnics on our lawns, and our children and pets play on them, so we decided to upcycle natural plant based materials – like distillers dried grains and soybean meal – to create our Lawn Food. Yes, that's why it smells a bit like beer and honestly we couldn't find a reason complain about that. Cheers!
No Added Phosphates: Purely Organic Products Lawn Food is made without added phosphates so it meets and exceeds local environmental regulations limiting Phosphate usage in municipalities across the USA and Canada.
Choose the Right Day: For best results apply this product on a calm day when no heavy rains are expected; and daytime temperatures have risen above 45º F on a consistent basis.
Set Your Spreader: Set your drop or rotary spreader to deliver fertilizer at a rate of 4-8 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. of lawn. Individual spreader settings will vary; but common settings are listed below. (Refer to your spreader’s instructions for additional information.)

Apply Evenly: Working back and forth in steady rows, apply Lawn Food evenly across your entire lawn.
Clean Up for the Environment: Get the most out of your lawn care, and protect the environment, by sweeping excess or stray particles – that land in the driveway, sidewalk or street – back onto the lawn.
Water to Activate: Water your lawn lightly after application to activate the fertilizer; and keep application areas moist, but not saturated, with additional watering over the next 3-4 days.
Important Note: The instructions above are for use as a guide only. For complete instructions for use and safety precautions review the back of your product package and the manufacturer's Material Safety Data Sheet.
A Well Fed Lawn is a Happy Lawn: Just like you, your lawn needs nutrient rich food to grow and flourish. We recommend feeding with Lawn Food about four times a year – with the first feed in the early spring and the last in the late fall – for a lush, healthy lawn.
Water Well & Often: Healthy, well fed, lawns are more efficient at absorbing water and nutrients. Water your lawn every few days to provide approximately 1" of moisture (including rainfall) per week. (A typical sprinkler takes 3-4 hours to provide 1" of water.)
Mow Like a Pro Never remove more than 1/3 of the blade of grass when mowing. During times of stress (for instance in the hot summer) keep grass longer to protect the plant. Leaving clippings on the lawn allows plant nutrients to recycle back to the soil.
Does This Fertilizer Need to be Watered in After Application? For the best results you should water your lawn or turf lightly after application to activate the fertilizer. If rain is due within 2-3 days of application then the fertilizer can be left on the lawn until the rain activates it.
What is the N-P-K Ratio of This Product? Purely Organic Products LLC Lawn Food has an NPK of 10-0-2 or 10% Nitrogen (N), 0% Phosphorus (P), and 2% Potassium (K).
Why Aren't There Any Phosphates (Phosphorus) in Your Lawn Food? Many states and local municipalities restrict or prohibit the application of Phosphates on lawns and turf; because of the negative environmental impact of excess phosphorus on local water quality, plant and animal life.
Can I Use a Handheld Spreader with Lawn Food? We recommend using a rolling broadcast or drop spreader with our products because they tend to provide more even and measurable coverage. If you're planning to use a hand held spreader we recommend applying 4-5 pounds of fertilizer per 1000 square feet of lawn turf. (There are approximately 3 cups of fertilizer per pound.)
