Feeding My Lawn – Does Mittleider Magic Work?

Q.   I’m interested in improving my lawn.  How should I adjust your formulas (I’ve purchased some of your mineral packages) and feeding schedule for a Bermuda grass lawn?

A.  The Mittleider fertilizers work wonderfully well for lawns, as well as everything else in your yard and garden.  If you want your lawn to produce a large and constant crop of grass, just feed it regularly.

On the other hand, if you want it just to maintain a nice green color and not grow very fast, I recommend you use something else – AFTER you get the lawn thick, green, and growing properly. 

To improve a poor lawn feed first with the Pre-Plant Mix of 80 parts lime or gypsum, 4 parts magnesium sulfate (Epsom Salt) and 1 part boron (20 Mule Team Borax).

Then feed two or three times – every ten days to two weeks – with Weekly Feed.
