    How to use

    How to use

    1. Aerate lawn in early spring. Rake and remove debris.
    2. Apply this product only on established lawns.

    • Apply with spreader.
      - Use spreader settings for your brand/model. Too much fertilizer can burn the lawn.
      - Do not apply by hand.
      - Fill spreader on a solid surface (not lawn). Sweep to remove any spillage.
      - Guaranteed burn-proof when used according to label directions.***
    • To ensure uniform coverage, spread fertilizer over entire surface in a criss-cross pattern, first applying lengthwise, and then widthwise.
      - Close the spreader when stopping or turning.

    3. Spot check lawn for bare spots. Where necessary, prepare the soil and apply C-I-L® Grass Seed.
    4. Water fertilizer in to ensure maximum absorption.

    When to apply

    Spring and summer:  Starting in early spring, apply only on established lawns every 4-6 weeks.

    • When cutting, set mower level at 7.5 cm (3 in) and leave clippings on the lawn.
    • Continue application monthly to ensure healthy grass growth that will help with weed control.
    • Use correct spreader setting for the brand/model you have.
