The basic of using Super Juice.
Fertilizer Schedule for Dummies (Dummy being Doc)
1- Very early spring we use SuperJuice in the 14-2-4 ratio and spray every 2-3 weeks. If your lawn is weak, you can spray every 1-2 weeks. Daily high temps in the 60s. Wait on any granulars. You’ll be scalping, there will be heavy rains, etc, etc.
2- Spring, apply the new PGF Complete granular fertilizer once daytime temps start hitting the 70s. Keep applying Super Juice every 2-3 weeks in the 14-2-4 ratio. Note: The new PGF is a golf course quality, professional, slow release, non-organic, fertilizer.
3- Late Spring, temps are starting to hit in the 80s, you have slow release PGF down that is working, just keep spraying Super Juice.
4- Summer, temps hitting the 90s constantly. Go swimming. If you have some nice weather patterns move in, feel free to hit the lawn with Super Juice in the 7-1-2 ratio.
5- Early fall, temps dropping back to the 80s, heavy heat and droughts are gone. Apply a light coat of the PGF ( 1/2 strength) and start spraying with Super Juice again. Keep spraying every 2-3 weeks until the first freeze is about 30 days away.
How many POUNDS of nitrogen do I need to put down on my lawn?
Doc hates the POUND lingo…. most lawns need less than people use, especially if spoon feeding with Super Juice and using Humic DG to improve the soil . Example: In 2018 Doc applied 8 treatments of Super Juice to his lawn and two treatments of Organic. The TOTAL pounds of nitrogen for the ENTIRE YEAR was approx .88 pounds per 1000 sq ft. That’s POINT… 88 pounds to have a golf course quality lawn.
Do I have to wait before spraying Super Juice if I put down other fertilizers?
No, spray at anytime it is very mild. Spray it ANY TIME… with any other product.
How much water do I use when I mix it?
14-2-4 ratio = 1 cup treats 1500 sq ft //// 7-1-2 ratio = 1 cup treats 3000 sq ft
(The amount of WATER used is irrelevant)
Focus on the amount of dry mix per 1000 sq ft.
The amount of water is really not a concern. The only thing you need to regulate is the amount of DRY MIX. Use enough water to apply that amount of dry mix. Example: One gallon of WATER with 3 cups of dry mix is the SAME… as 2 gallons of water with 3 cups of dry mix. As along as ALL that water and mix combined is applied to the same sq ft of lawn.
Can it be used on “X” type of grass?
It can be used on ANY type of grass. Period.
Is it safe around pets and kids?
Read the label, there’s nothing in it that is considered “toxic” or dangerous, and the amount used is VERY light. No worries.
