Has anyone tried Procare Natural Fertilizer?

Post by ladycage » Sat Aug 31, 2019 2:53 pm

I was at Lowes looking for Milorganite but it was sold out, instead they had an alternative "Procare Natural Fertilizer" 4-3-0. Has anyone used this before, what were the results?

Tring it out on one side of my lawn for comparison. Just put it down yesterday.
Its 1 dollar cheaper per bag than Milo

So which one do you prefer? It looks about the same to me except the left side has more lighter spots.

I used Procare all Summer long. I love it and plan to use it next year. This picture is pre-Lawn leveling.

Wow your lawn looks thick and lush, how often do you apply the procare? How much do you use per application? I wish I could get my lawn to look that good.

I applied Procare once a month once daytime temperatures reached eighty degrees. I put down enough to give my yard .50 pounds of nitrogen per one thousand square feet.

Was procare the only thing you applied to your lawn or did you use other amendments/fertilizers? Your lawn looks great , you did a good job :thumbup:
