Spring. I thought it would never come this year. Now that it finally has, I am busy at work outside!
I LOVE working outside in the yard. And judging from my facebook post the other day, a lot of you LOVE working in the yard.
I have been cleaning out and planting flowers in pots on my deck and front porch, cleaning out and planting in flower beds, doing some sprucing up of outside and more.
But caring for the outside extends beyond flowers, and gardens, and porches. You have to worry about the biggest thing – the lawn! I get a little lost when it comes to that except for the mowing part.
I don’t know if it is because we had so much cold weather in March or a late spring or what but our yard seemed to be taking forever to “get green” this year. Anyone else feeling the same way?
So I was super excited when I was contacted by Central Garden & Pet and sent a basket of goodies to try out in my yard and around my home.
First up is this Ironite Plus Yard and Garden spray.
How could I go wrong with Ironite® Brand mineral supplements which have helped plants develop strong roots and lush, green growth for over 55 years?
It took no time at all to apply this to my yard. In fact it was so easy, it barely needs an explanation, but here goes.
You will want your soil to be moist so either do it in early morning after the dew or water your yard before applying. Shake the container and then connect it to your garden hose. Turn on the water, and then turn on the nozzle on the Ironite bottle.
Then just walk across your yard spraying from side to side making sure to get even and good coverage. This one little bottle covers up to 5,000 square feet!
Ironite® Plus Liquid Lawn & Garden Spray 6-2-1 is dual-acting formula that feeds through the foliage and the roots. It contains 1% iron and does not cause plant “burn.” It is formulated to cause your lawn or flowers/shrubs to green up quickly. Who doesn’t want that?
I am already seeing a difference in our grass – yay! You can apply this every 2-4 weeks if needed. I also sprayed it on my flower beds – it is safe and made to be used on lawns, shrubs, trees, and flowers.
I have created a Pinterest board to document all things home and garden this spring and summer. You can find that board and follow or repin from it here and even create your own Home and Garden board on Pinterest. (Share the link to your board or Pinterest profile in the comments and I will come follow you!)
