How Much Weed & Feed for My Lawn?

A healthy lawn requires adequate watering on a regular basis as well as weed and feed or fertilizer. You can buy a spreader from your local home improvement store and the options for weed and feed or fertilizer are endless and depend on what type of grass you have. Once you buy your spreader and the right food for your lawn, how do you know what setting to put the spreader on?

We found a pretty neat tool over on the Scotts website that really makes it simple!

Step 1: Follow this link: Scotts Spreader Settings
Step 2: Accept their terms
Step 3: Select your spreader model from the dropdown
Step 4: Enter the 12 digit barcode from your lawn feed bag (it doesn’t even have to be Scott’s brand!)
Step 5: Click the Find My Settings button

That’s all there is to it!

Save Time and Reduce Your Water Bill

Having a yard full of grass can look good, but the constant mowing and high water bills can be a little taxing. Add some style to your yard with hardscapes and enjoy a lower water bill and some new found time!

Whether its adding a walkway made of a natural stone like Flagstone, Limestone or Bluestone, or simply adding some stones or gravel in place of grass, adding some hardscape can really transform the look of your yard.

Add a retaining wall, a new planter bed, or a combination of the two for some style, height variation or just for a pop of color in your yard.

Hate Maintaining That Sideyard?

You know that useless piece of yard you have next to your house that always gets neglected? Instead of wasting water on it, try something like:

  • Hardscapes
  • Walking Path
  • Planter Boxes
  • Drought Resistant Plants

They went with a path on the other side of the yard and some hardscape:
