We say it a lot, but here it is again: the need for fertilizer should be based on a soil test.

 

Total Lawn Food 16-4-8 + Iron

Super-Sod Total Lawn Food Plus Iron Package

  • Total Lawn Food is the perfect all-purpose fertilizer for most warm- and cool-season turfgrasses. Do NOT use on TifBlair™ Centipede, due to the high rate of nitrogen (Centipede needs only 1-2 lbs. nitrogen per year, and a high rate can mean death. Use Centipede Formulation below).
  • Total Lawn Food contains both soluble and slow-release fertilizers. The soluble nitrogen gives turfgrass a good boost and encourages more aggressive leaf growth. The slow release will become available to the turfgrass over time, preventing a spiking of growth in favor of a continuous, even growth pattern.
  • The purpose of Total Lawn Food 16-4-8 + Iron is to replace nutrients that have been removed in a ratio that is best for the turf being grown.
  • This formulation is best for actively growing warm- and cool-season turfgrasses. For fertilization of established lawns, consult our Lawn Maintenance Guides.
  • When laying sod apply 15 lbs. per 1000 square feet for Zoysia, Bermuda, St. Augustine, Fescue (use the 5-10-30 formulation below for Centipede). For more information, read How to Lay Sod.
  • Comes in a 20 lb. easy-to-handle bag.

 

Starter and Centipede Formulation (5-10-30 + Iron)

Super-Sod Starter and Centipede Formulation 5-10-30 Plus Iron Package

  • This is a traditional fertilizer mix used for generations in farming and landscape maintenance as a starter fertilizer. This formulation, at the recommended rate, adds a small amount of nitrogen, but is higher in phosphorus and potassium.
  • Phosphorus and potassium are important in early spring to encourage health and more prolific root growth in warm-season grasses.
  • Applying 5-10-30 in spring to warm-season grasses such as Zoysia, Bermuda, St. Augustine, and Centipede will encourage root recovery from the winter without creating lush growth. Warm-season grasses that are lush and green too early are subject to frost damage causing delayed green-up or in worst cased dead grass. For fertilization of established lawns, consult our Lawn Maintenance Guides.
  • When laying sod apply 10 lbs. per 1000 square feet for Centipede (use the 16-4-8 formulation above for Zoysia, Bermuda, St. Augustine, Fescue). For more information, read How to Lay Sod.
  • Comes in a 20 lb. easy-to-handle bag.

 

Pelletized Dolomitic Limestone

Super-Sod Pelletized Dolomitic Limestone Package

  • Super-Sod's Pelletized Dolomitic Limestone is a dust-free, easy-to-spread limestone product that neutralizes soil acidity and is a major source of 2 secondary nutrients (calcium and magnesium).
  • The need for lime should be established based on a soil test. For instance, Centipede loves acid soils, so lime may not be necessary.
  • Lightly rake into the surface 2 to 3 inches for best results before planting and continue to apply as soil test indicates over the top.
  • Comes in 20 lb. easy-to-handle bags.
