How To Grow A Beautiful Lawn with Effective Microorganisms®

A great looking lawn can give a tremendous amount of satisfaction to any homeowner and a well maintained lawn improves the value of your home. Remember, the most important factor to successful gardening is to have nutrient rich soil that is loaded with beneficial microbes. Effective Microorganisms® is an essential part of your lawn success. In addition to our EM-1® Microbial Inoculant, fertilizer amendments & compost accelerants, you can also add humates and Mycorrhizal inoculants.

How To Use EM-1® To Grow A Lush, Beautiful Green Lawn:

(1) In the spring apply 1 pound EM® Bokashi per 100 square feet of lawn.

(2) Apply the EM-1® Microbial Inoculant with any type of sprayer or inject EM-1® into an irrigation system once per week from end of frost to hard frost (spring through beginning of winter). It is best to apply EM-1® in the mornings or evenings, before or after rainfall/irrigation, and after mowing.

(3) Use with organic or conventional fertilizers.

(4) Use a "mulching mower" to chop and re-deposit grass clippings. Spray EM-1® Microbial Inoculant on the turf after mowing. This enables the clippings to rapidly breakdown into stable organic matter for the soil. Organic matter particles provide a home for EM-1® to establish in the soil.
