Lawn Food from Purely Organic Products is made with natural, plant based ingredients -- like distillers dried grains -- without harsh chemicals or smelly biosolids. It's specially formulated to provide the nutrients needed to promote a lush, green lawn for you and your family. This 25 pound bag covers up to 5,000 Square Feet of turf.
Rich in Nutrients: Purely Organic Products Lawn Food is NPK rated 10-0-2 to promote thick, lush, green turf. It will feed your lawn for up to 8 weeks between applications.
Will Not Burn Your Lawn When Used as Directed: At Purely Organic Products we believe that plant and garden care products should be good for plants; and easy for gardeners too. Our Lawn Food is made with natural ingredients, rather than harsh chemicals and mineral salts, so it won't burn or yellow your grass when used as directed. It is convenient with no restrictions on re-entry time (for pets or people) after application.
What to Put in It & What to Leave Out: One of the first decisions we made when developing our Lawn Food was what NOT to put in it. With more than 30 years in the lawn care business we knew that many popular fertilizer products were made with harsh chemicals, manure and even bio-solids (organic materials resulting from the treatment of domestic sewage – yes, you're reading that right).
We have picnics on our lawns, and our children and pets play on them, so we use natural, plant based ingredients–like distillers dried grains and soybean meal–to create our Lawn Food. Yes, that's why it smells a bit like beer and honestly we couldn't find a reason complain about that. Cheers!
No Added Phosphates: Purely Organic Products Lawn Food is made without added phosphates so it meets and exceeds local environmental regulations limiting Phosphate usage in municipalities across the USA.
Choose the Right Day: For best results apply this product on a calm day when no heavy rains are expected; and daytime temperatures have risen above 45° F on a consistent basis.
Set Your Spreader: Set your drop or rotary spreader to deliver fertilizer at a rate of 4-8 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. of lawn. Individual spreader settings will vary; but common settings are listed below. (Refer to your spreader’s instructions for additional information.)

Apply Evenly: Working back and forth in steady rows, apply Lawn Food evenly across your entire lawn.
Clean Up for the Environment: Get the most out of your lawn care, and protect the environment, by sweeping excess or stray particles -- that land in the driveway, sidewalk or street -- back onto the lawn.
Water to Activate: Water your lawn lightly after application to activate the fertilizer; and keep application areas moist, but not saturated, with additional watering over the next 3-4 days.
Important Note: The instructions above are for use as a guide only. For complete instructions for use and safety precautions review the back of your product package and the manufacturer's Material Safety Data Sheet.
A Well Fed Lawn is a Happy Lawn: Just like you, your lawn needs nutrient rich food to grow and flourish. We recommend feeding with one of our Lawn Food products about four times a year -- with the first feed in the early spring and the last in the late fall -- for a lush, healthy lawn.
Water Well & Often: Healthy, well fed, lawns are more efficient at absorbing water and nutrients. Water your lawn every few days to provide approximately 1" of moisture (including rainfall) per week. (A typical sprinkler takes 3-4 hours to provide 1" of water.)
Mow Like a Pro: Never remove more than 1/3 of the blade of grass when mowing. During times of stress (for instance in the hot summer) keep grass longer to protect the plant. Leaving clippings on the lawn allows plant nutrients to recycle back to the soil.
Does This Fertilizer Need to be Watered in After Application? For the best results you should water your lawn or turf lightly after application to activate the fertilizer. If rain is due within 2-3 days of application then the fertilizer can be left on the lawn until the rain activates it.
What is the N-P-K Ratio of This Product? Purely Organic Products LLC Lawn Food has an NPK Rating of 10-0-2 or 10% Nitrogen (N), 0% Phosphorus (P), and 2% Potassium (K).
Why Aren't There Any Phosphates (Phosphorus) in Your Lawn Food? Many states and local municipalities restrict or prohibit the application of Phosphates on lawns and turf; because of the negative environmental impact of excess phosphorus on local water quality, plant and animal life.
Can I seed my lawn BEFORE / AFTER / AT THE SAME TIME AS applying Lawn Food? Yes. Natural, plant based 10-0-2 Lawn Food can be applied as a starter fertilizer when laying down new seed; or it can be applied before or after seeding. It contains no harsh chemicals and will not harm newly seeded grass.
Can I Use a Handheld Spreader with Lawn Food? We recommend using a rolling broadcast or drop spreader with our products because they tend to provide more even and measurable coverage. If you're planning to use a hand held spreader we recommend applying 4-5 pounds of fertilizer per 1000 square feet of lawn turf. (There are approximately 4 cups of fertilizer per pound.)
Can I use Lawn Food, Grub & Feed, Weed & Feed and/or Crabgrass Defender Lawn Food at the same time? Each of the Lawn Food products from Purely Organic Products is designed to feed your lawn with 10-0-2 fertilizer. The three "combination products" will feed your lawn just like our original Lawn Food; but they're also specially enhanced with botanical oils to naturally help eliminate common problems like weeds, crabgrass or grubs.
- Lawn Food: Apply about 4-5 times per year about 6-8 weeks apart. For more information about when to feed, download our Lush Lawn Guide.
- Crabgrass Defender Lawn Food: If you've had problems with Crabgrass infestations in the past, replace your first Lawn Food application each year with Crabgrass Defender Lawn Food. A second spring application, 30-35 days after the first, may be needed if your lawn has a particularly bad history with crabgrass. In the fall replace your final Lawn Food application with Crabgrass Defender Lawn Food as broadleaf weeds begin to establish root systems in preparation for the following year.
- Weed & Feed: If you have common summer weeds (like dandelions, purslane, chickweed, thistle, ragweed, etc) replace your regular Lawn Food applications with Weed & Feed. If Weeds are particularly bad, shorten application times to every 4-6 weeks for extra weed killing and lawn boosting power.
- Grub & Feed: If you've had problems with grubs, or other sub-surface pests, in the past; replace your first summer Lawn Food application (usually in July) with Grub & Feed; and then follow that up with an additional application of Grub & Feed 30 days later.
Why Are Your Lawn Food Application Instructions Different for People Living in Florida? The state of Florida regulates fertilizer application differently than most other regions of the country. Specifically no more than 2 Lbs of Nitrogen can be applied per 1,000 Sq Ft per application during the spring and summer; and no more than 1 Lb of Nitrogen can be applied per 1,000 Sq Ft per application during the fall or winter. 10-0-2 Lawn Food from Purely Organic Products is guaranteed to have 10% Nitrogen per bag so in a 25 Lb bag, there will be 2.5 Lbs of Nitrogen. Our directions recommend application of 4-8 Lbs of fertilizer per 1,000 Sq Ft of lawn which is approximately 0.4-0.8 Lbs of Nitrogen per 1,000 Sq Ft. This is well within Florida's maximum Nitrogen application regulations. For complete information on regulations for fertilizer application in your area please check with your town or city hall or your local Cooperative Extension Agency.
