Most of our fertilizers are bottled for you to easily attach to your hose, and get to spraying. But what if you wanted more control for a better-looking lawn? Maybe you bought one of our gallon products that does not come with a sprayer, or you want access to different types of spray patterns. We have a lawn care hack that pairs our Simple Lawn Solutions potent fertilizers with your needs for a quick and easy fertilizer application: the Chameleon adaptable hose-end sprayer.
The Chameleon hose-end sprayer comes with its own container, but it also has an adapter built to fit any bottle – like our Simple Lawn Solutions liquid lawn food or booster! Grab a quart of any of our fertilizer and remove the hose-end sprayer. The Chameleon hose-end sprayer is designed to allow for safe attachment without touching any chemicals in your normal fertilizer, or in our case, avoid spilling your liquid fertilizer.
Once you have attached your Chameleon hose end sprayer to one our fertilizers and your garden hose, you can adjust the settings to fit your needs. At the mouth of the sprayer, using the smaller nozzle, you can change your hose spray setting to one of the three options. The settings are: flat spray, gentle shower spray, and a powerful bullet stream. These settings are each effective for different parts of your lawn care routine, and we’ll help you match the product and task to the appropriate spray setting to maximize your use of the Chameleon hose end sprayer. Also, make sure you move the dial to three ounces.
With a twist of the nozzle at the end of the Chameleon sprayer, you can adjust your hose setting to the flat spray. This spray setting is powerful enough to cover your lawn without damaging your lawn, making it the perfect choice for applying fertilizer to the entire area. Choose a liquid lawn food, such as the 16-4-8 Lawn Food, and with the flat spray setting, you can efficiently cover 3,200 square feet of lawn. If fertilizing is a daunting task in your lawn care routine, the combination of the Chameleon sprayer with our fertilizer will make it a quick, easy, and efficient task!
With another turn of the Chameleon hose sprayer nozzle, you will move to the shower setting. The shower setting is a gentle flow of water, which means it will not be useful for covering a vast lawn. However, the shower setting is great for feeding your garden! When you apply liquid lawn food to your garden, you never want to use a hose setting that is too powerful, or you will damage your flowers, leaves, and vegetables. By using the Chameleon hose sprayer on the gentle shower setting you can feed your garden without any damage. Our garden fertilizer can be used on fruits and vegetables without any worry of contamination, along with more delicate soils used in potting and flower beds.
The bullet spray setting is a powerful, high-pressure way to use your hose. For that reason, the bullet spray is not recommended to pair with your fertilizer. However, there are a few exceptions that need a more powerful setting. For example, if you have flower boxes in front of your windows, you can use the bullet spray to reach the far away boxes to fertilize or water without the close-range impact damaging them. You can also use the bullet spray setting without a fertilizer attached, using only water to give your yard a quick rinse. You also may want to use the bullet spray with just water to rinse any areas you may have accidentally applied fertilizer: fences, porches, or walkways.
The Chameleon hose end sprayer allows for maximum control of your fertilizer application. Just above where the sprayer attaches to your Simple Lawn Solutions fertilizer is a large green dial. That dial is used to adjust the concentration of water to fertilizer for the perfect amount of liquid lawn fertilizer. While our fertilizers are perfectly measured with helpful instructions for a great application every time, if you follow up with a Liquid Lawn Booster product, you might want more control. With the Chameleon concentration dial on the hose end sprayer, you can increase or decrease the concentration of products like Growth Booster, or Lawn Energizer. Adjusting the concentration also comes in handy with garden fertilizer. The concentration dial has set mix rates anywhere from 1 teaspoon to 8 ounces per gallon.
Your lawn might have a few separate areas: a front lawn, a side yard, a back yard, etc. If so, you don’t want to have to walk over to your main hose nozzle, spraying water and fertilizer as you do so, before moving to the next section for fertilizer application. With the Chameleon hose end sprayer, you can turn your hose on and off with the easy to use thumb trigger. Not only does this save you the trip, it also saves you from wasting water and fertilizer formula if you need to quickly pause your fertilizer application for any reason. Having an on and off switch also helps you switch between products. If you are following up a Liquid Lawn Food with a Liquid Lawn Booster, you can easily switch products without having to turn off the main hose nozzle!
Now that you have your Chameleon hose-end sprayer, here are a few tips for an easy fertilizer application every time:

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.
Whether you’re just getting started growing a brand-new lawn or you’re looking to treat problem areas in your backyard, there are a variety of products that can help you create the beautiful green oasis you’ve been dreaming of.
Weed removal is not an easy feat. To make this lawn care task less overwhelming, consider breaking up the areas of your lawn into sections and every week tackling one section at a time. A phased approach will make weed removal more manageable. Later on, we will discuss proper weed removal and disposal to prevent further seeding and spread of grass weeds.
