40% Kentucky Bluegrass - 40% Creeping Red Fescue - 20% Perennial Ryegrass - Mix
This mix has sun loving grass (Bluegrass) wear and heat tolerant grass (ryegrass) and shade tolerant grass (fescue). Most people have a variable lawn that has sunny, shady, and high traffic areas. By applying a mix, you allow a natural selection process to occur that ensures the best grass for that area is what takes hold rather than applying one type of seed and having weak patches in your lawn. When applying grass seed make sure the seed comes into direct contact with the soil. Rake the ground, apply the seed, and then pack the seed into the soil. You don’t have to water, but if you do you must continue until the grass is hardy enough to take care of itself. No matter how much you water, grass really only grows well when it is receiving natural rain so aim to grow new lawn during the spring or early fall when rains are more frequent.
What was once a weed in lawns is now being purchased several times a year by customers of Bluewater Agromart who want to try more environmentally friendly lawns. White Clover fixes its own nitrogen so it doesn’t require nitrogen fertilizer. It provides a food source for bees and grubs won’t eat its roots. White Clover stays green in droughts much longer than grass and is naturally a shorter growing plant that requires less mowing and watering. For those individuals who are ok with non-traditional lawns consider trying White Clover.
Weed B Gon

This product must be applied to actively growing weeds, repeat application may be necessary. For control of creeping weeds make sure you apply to all of them as populations can regenerate from a single missed plant. The secret to this products success is to keep an eye on the area and to keep applying as a spot treatment on any weeds that find their way back into the lawn until the creeping weeds have been completely eliminated. Do not apply to drought stressed lawn. Lawn may darken in color after application but will then return to its normal color. Remember to read and follow the label.
