Iron for Your Lawn

If you’re looking for grass care that’s going to give you a green lawn, you need to start looking at the nutrients your lawn is getting, and what your lawn is lacking. You know the macronutrients every lawn needs: nitrogen, potassium, and phosphorus. But do you know the secret micronutrient many homeowners miss? It’s iron! Not all fertilizers have the type of iron you need, so we’ll break down the best options for your lawn, and the easiest to apply.

 

 

How Iron Greens Your Lawn

If your lawn is looking yellow or brown but isn't drought stressed, your lawn most likely has a condition called iron chlorosis. Iron is a micronutrient that is essential in chlorophyll production. Since chlorophyll is what gives your lawn it’s green color, without iron, your lawn will be dull! Iron should be at the root of your grass care since it is especially vital in photosynthesis. That means even if you have all the other nutrients, sunlight, and water perfectly planned, without iron, your lawn doesn’t have the fuel to complete its growing and greening processes.

Micro Booster Fertilizer

With our Micro Booster formula, you get the powerful iron ingredients in a controlled, liquid formula. Micro Booster delivers greening iron, and a complex of other micronutrients, so your lawn is never deficient.  

 

When to Add Iron to your Grass

The best time to use our Micro Booster is in the spring or fall. You want to make sure your soil is stable to move these micronutrients to your grass roots. Remember, just because your lawn is yellow, does not mean your soil is unstable, it just indicates a nutrient deficiency. If a green lawn is really your main goal in your grass care, then we recommend using the 28-0-0 high N fertilizer formula followed up the Micro Booster in those fall or spring seasons.

Grass that has the right concentration of nitrogen will look lush and green, grow strong and fast, and appear thick and healthy. If your lawn is lacking nitrogen, it will be readily apparent to the naked eye. Nitrogen deficiencies cause the grass to appear discolored — such as yellow or orange, be smaller or stunted in growth, and each blade may have an unusual shape. Your lawn may also appear patchy or uneven.
