Wake Up Your Lawn with 2 Timely Tonics
Your grass will be thick and velvety green in no time at all.
It’s time to wake up your lawn with this marvelous
mixture that’ll make it rise, shine, and be rarin’ to grow:
Spring Wake-Up Tonic
Mix 50 pounds of pelletized gypsum, 50 pounds of
pelletized lime, 5 pounds of bonemeal, and 2 pounds of Epsom salts in a
wheelbarrow. Apply the mixture to your lawn with a broadcast spreader no more
than two weeks before fertilizing. This will help aerate your lawn, while giving
it something to munch on until you start your regular feeding program.
After applying the Spring Wake-Up Tonic, overspray it
with this tonic to kick it into high gear:
Mix 1 cup of baby
shampoo, 1 cup of ammonia, 1 cup of regular cola (not diet), and 4 tablespoons
of instant tea granules in a 20 gallon hose-end sprayer, and apply to the point
of run-off. This tonic will get all that good stuff working to help your grass
off to a super start—so get ready for the most terrific turf in town!
