"I just had to let you know that your Soil Syrup is a great product. As an Ag Engineer I have always known what Humic Acid was, but I had never used it. That being said, I had to re-sod part of my property three weeks ago. I sprayed Soil Syrup on the prepared soil before I put down 100 sq ft of sod in the pack yard. I put another 50 sq ft of sod in the front yard with not treatment. You aught to see the back yard portion. I had to cut it yesterday. It has taken so well that I can hardly see the demarcations between the sod pieces. This stuff is great!"

"I decided to try lawn honey about 6 weeks ago. This first thing I noticed was that the river that used to flow through my front yard is not longer there. I couldn't believe it. After that I noticed that the bent grass in the front yard started to turn green. For those who do not know what bent grass is, it is considered the luxury grass of the cool season grasses, but it is the hardest to maintain. Golf courses use it for there putting greens. Then about 2 weeks ago I used another application of Lawn Honey along with some Algoflash and SoilSyrup and the results were great!"

How To Grow Grass - Types of Grass

First it's important to make sure you're growing the right grass for your region. Otherwise all the lawn care in the world won't help you to grow grass. There are many different types of grasses that are grown in lawns, and these grasses have different growing requirements. Many factors go into the selection of a type of grass for a particular lawn. One of the overriding factors is your local climate. The so-called "warm-season" grasses are ideal for the southernmost states in the U.S., whereas "cool-season" grasses predominate in the North and in Canada. In between, for the Eastern U.S., lies the so-called "transition zone," comprised of zones 6-7.

Common cool-season grasses include:

  • Bentgrasses

  • Bluegrasses

  • Fescues

  • Ryegrasses

Common warm-season grasses are:

  • Bermuda grass

  • Buffalo grass

  • Zoysia grass

Many lawns are not always composed of just one type of grass, but rather of a mixture, to take advantage of the strengths of each type.

The following are examples of other factors that go into your selection of grass type, in addition to local climate (these examples pertain to lawns in the Northern zone and in the transition zone):

  • Shady areas are notorious obstacles to having green lawns. Among cool-season grasses, fine fescues are the most tolerant of shade.

  • Lawn areas with heavy foot traffic require a tough grass. A mix of Kentucky bluegrass and perennial rye will fill the bill here.

  • Some regions are more prone to drought than others. The new, improved strains of Kentucky bluegrass are relatively drought-tolerant.

But in addition to grass-type selection, don't forget about the other steps to successfully grow grass. If you're committed to growing a beautiful lawn read on about the other key factors to grow grass.

How To Grow Grass - Watering Lawns

In order to grow grass successfully, you'll need to know how much water your lawn gets. In dry climates, installing an irrigation system is often necessary to grow grass successfully. Meanwhile, in the Pacific Northwest, you may be able to get by with whatever rainfall you get. For most homeowners, the decision to install an irrigation system for watering lawns may not be practical. Cost will be a definite consideration, but keep in mind that, that there are other solutions to keeping your lawn green that can also save you money.

One way or the other, your grass must have sufficient water on a consistent schedule in order for you to achieve the goal of a lush green lawn. If your neighbors are watering lawns with an automatic irrigation system -- and you aren't -- you're not starting out with an even playing field.

One way to level the playing field when you grow grass is to use Lawn Honey.

Lawn Honey is an amazing, scientifically advanced water absorbing gel. It stores water and nutrients in the soil so they last longer. Giving you a greener, lusher lawn than ever before, with less water and fertilizer and in a lot less time than other lawn care treatments.

Lawn Honey will create thousands of tiny water sponges in the lawn that will hold water and nutrients for your lawn. These tiny water sponges will collect water from the ground and store it, until the yard needs it. The tiny water sponges Lawn Honey creates throughout your lawn will actually help aerate and condition the soil and increase the growth of beneficial microorganisms. Which means you'll have healthier more productive soil.

You'd be amazed, but most of the water that makes it to your lawn from rain or from sprinklers doesn't even get used. The sun dries it up, or soaks through the ground and past the root system of your lawn. Our Lawn Honey absorbs all that water right into the root zone of your lawn, store watering for use when the lawn needs it. Lawn Honey is also going to help retain any fertilizer you apply to the lawn. It will hold on to the fertilizer until the grass absorbs it from the Lawn Honey. So you can water less, fertilize less.

Lawn Honey's ability to increase the water holding capability of the soil is great if you have just put down sod or planted grass seed. Lawn Honey will help keep it moist, which is critical for helping new sod take root, and new grass seed germinate. And if you live in an area with watering restrictions that means your lawn will stay green when your neighbor's lawn is turning brown.

Lawn Honey will also help prevent erosion, so if you've tried to grow grass on a hillside without much luck, then Lawn Honey is for you. And if you live next to a stream or lake, Lawn Honey will help prevent sediment and fertilizers from flowing into the water. Keeping the water cleaner.

I was skeptical of Lawn Honey, so I did an experiment. When I re-seeded my lawn this spring, I treated half the lawn with Lawn Honey, and half without. The half that was treated with Lawn Honey all grew in full and lush, and fast. The other half looked so bad in comparison, I stopped the experiment after 2 weeks, and treated the whole yard! Lawn Honey made growing grass from seed a whole lot easier! My kids really love playing in the soft full grass!

How To Grow Grass - Eliminate Lawn Thatch

Before you start applying anything to your lawn, you'll want to make sure that your grass isn't being hindered by lawn thatch. If you have too much thatch, the lawn thatch layer will prevent water from getting to the roots of your grass, effectively nullifying your efforts to watering your lawn. And lawn thatch layer also furnishes cover for unwanted insect pests.

To check and see if you have a lawn thatch problem, measure the depth of the thatch.

If your lawn thatch layer is ½" or less, you're ready to start applying our Lawn Care products. SoilSyrup will help break down any thatch you may have, and the thatch won't get in the way of effective watering. You can also minimize your minor thatch problem by simply aerating the lawn. SoilSyrup and Lawn Honey will help aerate your lawn chemically, but it may help to also do so mechanically by walking over your lawn with spiked shoes or raking up the thatch.

But if you're lawn thatch layer is, say, ¾" or more, you have a major lawn thatch problem, for which you'll need the aid of a vertical mower. Vertical mowers can be rented from your local rental center. Also spread a soil conditioner like SoilSyrup over the soil. By removing this heavy layer of thatch and applying SoilSyrup, you'll help improve the soil conditions that you'll need to effectively grow grass.

How To Grow Grass - Lawn Care Program

Now that we have the basics out of the way, you can move on to actually applying products that will help you grow grass and make you the envy of the neighborhood.

Your grass needs periodic feedings, and it is best to meet this need for periodic feedings by fertilizing lawns with a balanced fertilizer like Algoflash. Our Lawn Care packages include Algoflash, and when used in conjunction with SoilSyrup and Lawn Honey you'll be able to feed your lawn over time, rather than all at once. Fertilizing lawns with our package allows the grass to "eat" at its own leisure. As nutrients are released, the root system of your grass fills in any bare patches, depriving weed seeds of a place to germinate.

We suggest a four-step process to grow grass. Our Lawn Care products include Lawn Honey, SoilSyrup, Algoflash and MegaGro, all are ready-to-use, no mixing or measuring, just hook up the hose-end sprayer to your garden hose and spray. These products are all the latest in consumer lawn care science and have been used by commercial landscapers for years for growing grass!

Our lawn care products will improve the way you grow grass in following ways:

First, your soil is going to store more water and nutrients than it ever did before. This means that all the nutrients that are in the soil, or that get applied to the soil will stay in the soil longer, and last longer. The rain that your yard gets, and the sprinkling that you may do, will all last longer, providing more food and water to grow grass. This means a healthier lawn with less effort than you've ever had to do in the past.

Second, you'll improve the quality of your soil, so your growing grass develops healthy root systems. If you have clay or sandy soils, or otherwise difficult soils, this is extremely important to do. Your lawn won't thrive if it doesn't have the basic building blocks to start it off.

Third, you're going to boost growth throughout your lawn with our complete fertilizers and micro-nutrients. So, once you've prepped the soil, the growing grass is ready to thrive. Our nutrients will give your grass that extra boost to get it growing well and looking healthy and strong.

It's a smarter way to grow grass!
