• Total Lawn Food is the perfect all-purpose fertilizer for most warm- and cool-season turfgrasses. Do NOT use on 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.
  • Comes in 25 or 50 lb. easy-to-handle bags.
  • During the Year: This formulation is best for actively growing warm- and cool-season turfgrasses. For fertilization of established lawns, consult our Lawn Maintenance Guides.
  • New Sod: When laying sod apply 6 lbs. per 1000 square feet for Zoysia, Bermuda, Fescue (use the 5-10-30 formulation below for Centipede). For more information, read How to Lay Sod.
