Super Juice Fertilizer Information

lawn care products

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.

Q&A

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.

Hey Doc enjoy the videos/site. Curious if super juice can be applied as is, dry, just before it rains? Any benefit to both spraying per schedule but also lay it down dry as you would do w Milo or the new PG organic. Thanks

I have 1/2 an acre (roughly 22,000 sq ft). According to my calculations I would need around 5 cups to apply in the 14-2-4 ratio. But in your video you said 1 cup treats 15,000sq ft. Could you clarify this for me?

I placed an order for both the super juice and Andersons preimmergent. I will be receiving the super juice before the Andersons pre immergent (1week). Is it an issue to apply the juice 1 week prior to the preimmergent or is that ok?

Thanks,
Nick

With super juice being applied as a liquid, Should I be concerned about super juice staining my concrete surfaces if I happen to get some on them while applying to my lawn?

Sorry Doc, I should have been more specific. I was moreso asking about the iron in it staining the concrete. I am used to using granules and ensuring I sweep up the concrete before watering to prevent staining. With this being a liquid, is there any concern for that?

If you only applied .88 lbs per thousand in total nitrogen for the entire year, do you think you would have seen the same results with a cheaper product and why?

Thanks Doc! Yes the other nutrients make sense. Perhaps you should also add to the Q&A how many pounds of them also. Also, what do you mean by crap? Milo?

Thanks Doc! If you are starting out on a lawn like the worlds worst Bermuda lawn or a lawn like Barbs, do you need more or less nutrients than a lawn like the worlds best Bermuda lawn? If you have a small amount of Bermuda but trying to get it to fill in what would you recommend? Since there is Less Bermuda grass per thousand does that mean you need less nutrients per thousand or more nutrients per thousand?

Doc, great information, keep it up. My situation is I have a mix of KBG and rye grass. My question is how long, after mixing the super juice will it maintain its working properties? If I mix too much or wish to mix some ahead of time, how long will it keep?Thanks

Hey. Doc im located in California with the yard size close to 2000sq ft front and back. Please let me know if I got this right. If I mix 1 1/4 cup of super juice into 1 gal of water and fill up 4 of the 32oz spray bottles. I would be using 2 3/4 in front grass area and 1 1/4 on the back side? Front is about 1150sq ft and back is about 779sq ft

Perfect. One more question because I’m going to use super juice as my primary can I still put down my left over liquid fertilizer, Iron, and Humic DG? Or will that now be over kill?

Hey Doc,
Love your page and vids. Been struggling with my Bermuda being green and weed free. Feeling good about this year. So in to my question. Seen someone asked about super juice in the garden. You going the same rate as on the lawn. What about adding some in a watering can. To do potted flowers and around palm trees.

Hey Doc, my bag of super juice and the spray bottles with dye you recommend arrive today. Just south of Atlanta where it’s been in the 60’s and 70’s this weekend, the Bermuda is still brown, too early to use SJ this weekend or can I do the first application and push every two weeks from here on out?
Thanks
Doug

Hey Doc, I just moved into a new home last year and I did soil test this winter. My phosphorus levels came back very high. 1900 lbs per thousand! Super juice has a small amount of phosphorus. In my case would you recommend super juice for my lawn?

Hey Doc, I’m a little late to the program and therefore still struggling with weeds. Right now I have a bumper crop of chickweed and hairy bittercress which I will address with my fall preemergent. For now, should I wait until the warm weather kills off the weeds before applying Super Juice?

Thank you for all your help, Doc! During summer, if you’re expecting 10+ days of no rain, would you recommend watering the 1″/week all at once on one day, or over multiple days? I’ve heard 1 day helps roots grow deeper, but I know when you went on vacation in the past, you set your sprinklers to water lightly every day to avoid burnout. Thanks again for your time and dedication!

My bermuda hasnt started growing yet, just weeds. Put down SJ now before the bermuda even starts?? And is pre-emergent a weed preventer of sorts? Just trying to get my definitions right (in my mind). Thanks for your videos. I want a great lawn but didnt have a gameplan before watching your videos.

I am going to overseed a very bare part of my Bermuda lawn. I was going to put granular fertilizer on top of that and supplement with SJ. Should I immediately spray the SJ on top of the granular and seed or wait some time? Thanks and I can’t wait to turn my horror show lawn around with your videos guidance.

Hey Doc, I’m out in Central Texas & I have already done 2x treatments of SJ in the past 2 weeks and already seeing new growth here https://ibb.co/HgDWyf7

Would it be ok to do 2x SJ treatments per week or would that be pushing it too much?

I have spots closer to the back patio that is just dirt & thin. Any ideas on how to bring that section back? Here is what it currently looks like https://ibb.co/VTs7myY

Hi Doc, thanks for all you do. My question about the. Super juice is using the sprayer you recommend how long does a full bottle last or how much SF you can cover with one full bottle? I don’t have a big lawn everything total about 4500sf. I did the 3 cups with 2 gallons of water and It seams like it take a long time to go through one full bottle. Am I doing something wrong? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Can you add 2,4-D to the super juice mixture? I’m experienced with SJ, and the lawn is gorgeous, but we have an outbreak of ‘Aster’ (in the bad part) apparently, and want to kill it as I feed the good areas 🙂

Hey doc, can I apply super juice in a 15 gallon boom sprayer equipped with 3 floodjet nozzles? I have roughly a half acre yard, part zoysia and the rest common bermuda. Aside of granular fertilizers, all of my herbicides, pre & post, plus liquid iron, I have always applied with my boom sprayer setup with sufficient water. When dealing with a larger yard, boom spraying makes it quite easier than water hoses and bottles. What do u recommend? Can I apply that way, with sufficient water, and get good results?

Doc! I need your help! I’ve been following you for a year and my lawn looks great (except for some needed leveling). But – I woke up this morning to two kinds of mushrooms in the yard! I can’t find anything about mushrooms and what to do.
