Organic Fertilizer Program
Great lawns and landscapes need proper watering, proper drainage, and good soil. The best way to improve your soil without having to replact it, is by annual aeration & topdressing, along with a comprehensive fertilizer program. When it comes to feeding your lawn and landscape, it is important to provide nutrients for your soil as well as your plants. Our program is designed to bring life to your soil in order that it may grow healthy lush turf and plants. We use a granular fertilizer, a liquid soil bio-stimulant and a foliar spray for each application. Our granular fertilizer works to build your soil's structure while feeding the microorganisms living in it. By using a slow release product, your soil continues to take in nutrients that benefit your lawn and landscape. Once we spread the granular fertilizer, we spray your turf and flower beds with John's Recipe for foliar feeding and Agrispon for microorganism soil building. We do recommend "watering in" the fertilizer after we are finished, then continue your normal watering schedule. The products selected for each application are specifically chosen to effectively work together, offering you a complete feeding program for your landscape. Prices start at $72 per application. We offer 5 applications a year:
Lady Bug John’s Recipe
This fast-acting fertilizer is perfect for all plants. John’s Recipe™ blends seaweed, Medina Soil Activator, humic acid, molasses, and emulsified/hydrolyzed fish. It contains no artificial chemicals and is an Earth friendly product. The fish products are a nitrogen source ideal for all plants. Seaweed's trace minerals and growth enhancers promote strong root systems and help plants deal with stress. Medina Soil Activator stimulates beneficial foliar and soil microbes. Humic acid unlocks soil minerals, stimulates enzyme and amino acid activity, increases chlorophyll synthesis, while encouraging beneficial microorganisms. Molasses is a source of carbon, B-vitamins, and is food for beneficial microbes.
A liquid metabolic stimulator that encourages root growth and top growth through biological activity. It is used for soil, foliage, and seed treatment to enhance plant growth and health. It reduces drought stress and salt stress and makes better use of all fertilizer elements, especially nitrogen. By increasing microbial activity, Agrispon increases nitrogen fixation by microorganisms. This is a concentrated bio-stimulant formulated from plant and mineral extracts.
February – Corn Gluten Meal 9-0-0, Agrispon, and John’s Recipe
Corn gluten meal is the high-protein fraction of corn. Nature's Guide® Corn Gluten Meal is 60% protein corn gluten that is used as a natural lawn fertilizer. Iowa State University claims that it helps prevent weed seed germination. Therefore corn gluten meal should not be applied to areas planned for new seeding, because it may interfere with germination. Application in the early spring and again in the fall is recommended.

A “blended turf” fertilizer inoculated with a host of beneficial microbes, enzymes and amino acids, and with an N-P-K of 6-2-4, it is one of the most nutrient rich organic plant foods on the market. Made with feather meal, alfalfa meal, soybean meal, wheat midds, corn meal, kelp meal, molasses, humates, yeast and compost Texas Tee will help achieve a healthy, safe and highly disease resistant turf.
