The proper diet for winter lawns

While most lawns slumber throughout the colder winter months, turf is still alive and requires nutrients to grow back strong in the coming spring. Feed grass roots throughout the winter weather with our all-natural, organic-based Natural Alternative® Winter Fertilizer 20-0-4 - application 5 of the five-part Natural Alternative® Lawn Care System. With 100% organic nitrogen, this winter lawn fertilizer ensures your turf is ready to grow when spring temperatures arrive.

Naturally sustainable

Winter Fertilizer 20-0-4 is phosphorus-free to promote clean rivers, lakes, bays and wetlands. With all-natural and organic ingredients, Natural Alternative® fertilizer is the more sustainable way to grow a thicker, greener lawn all year round.

For Established Lawns: Apply in late fall at a rate of 3 lbs. of product per 1,000 square feet. Apply evenly with a calibrated spreader. 3 lbs. of this product per 1,000 square feet is equivalent to 0.60 lbs. of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet. Check your local regulations for fertilizer application dates. In most areas, November 15th is the last day permitted to apply lawn fertilizer.

For Newly Seeded Lawns: Rake fertilizer into the upper inch of the soil before seeding. Water until the seed germinates and establishes. Continue with the remaining Natural Alternative® 5-Part Lawn Care System.
