AlfaGro traction control and sidewalk de-icer couldn't be easier. It's fast, it's effective, it's non-toxic, it's biodegradable and it not only doesn't burn your lawn like salt and some of the other de-icers, it fertilizes it instead. This completely natural fertilizer that contains nitrogen to promote ice melting and has a texture to provide traction while it works. In spring, the alfalfa serves as a nitrogen-fertilizer for surrounding greenery.
Directions for Use - How do I use AlfaGro?
AlfaGro can be easily applied using a broadcast spreader for lawns or simply by hand for gardens and pots. AlfaGro can also be made into a healthy tea for foliar applications and everyday watering to help feed your soil.
Apply using common drop or broadcast spreader. Follow spreader directions carefully. Measure your lawn area precisely to determine the correct amount required. Ensure that the spreader's fertilizer-release door is closed (in the off position) before filling, stopping or turning. If the lawn food spills onto the lawn, disperse with a broom. For optimal coverage, apply half the recommended amount over the entire area lengthwise. Apply the remaining half crosswise.
Rate for Established Healthy Lawns: 10-12 lbs. per 500 square feet.
To revitalize an old lawn or damaged lawns: Use 7 lbs. per 100 sq. ft. Apply once in spring, and water well twice a week for 2 weeks. You should see results in 6 weeks.
Timing for Lawns: Apply as a sole lawn food, 3 times per growing season: in early spring, July and in September. Water thoroughly after every application.
AlfaGro works with all grass types - Bahia, Bentgrass, Bermuda, Bluegrass, Buffalo, Carpet, Centipede, Fescue, Ryegrass, St. Augustine, Zoysia.
Gardens, Shrubs, Trees and Flowers
Garden Beds: Spread AlfaGro by hand prior to planting, at the rate of 12 lbs. per 500 square feet. Work into soil using a garden tiller or rake. For older beds: Work 2-5 lbs. into each 100 square feet of bed area.
Potted Plants: At the beginning of each season, mix approximately 1/2 cup of AlfaGro per one gallon of potting soil.
Shrubs, Perennials and Annuals: For best results, sprinkle AlfaGro around the base of the plants, bushes, shrubs or flowers you wish to treat. Use approximately 1 cup every 12 inches of the drip line (where rainfall would drip off the canopy of the plant), and work into soil. Reapply every 6 - 8 weeks throughout the growing season. One 50 lb. bag can treat over 2,000 feet of top soil.
Roses, in particular, like AlfaGro and benefit from up to 5 cups of AlfaGro per plant every ten weeks, worked into the soil.
Pour 2 - 4 cups of AlfaGro into an old sock. Soak the filled sock in 5 gallons of water overnight. Remove sock and reserve remaining fiber to use when needed to fertilize around the base of plants. The AlfaGro tea can be used as a foliar spray or as a liquid fertilizer. Use tea within 24 hours.
For foliage application: Pour tea into a clean plastic hand sprayer or watering can. Spray on foliage. Apply once a month throughout the growing season.
For root application: Pour tea into a watering can. Soak the base of the plant. Apply once a month throughout the growing season. (For maximum results avoid the use of chemical fertilizers and reapply every 60 days.)
