Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer (4 lb Box)

For a Lush, Thick, Green Lawn

Bio-Turf is an entirely natural granular lawn fertilizer designed to provide a slow, steady release of nutrients and encourage deep root development to help reduce watering requirements. Bio-Turf’s nitrogen-rich formula boosts early season growth while its extra potassium reduces seasonal stress due to temperature extremes and drought. Bio-Turf is also ideal for garden vegetables like corn, tomatoes and leafy greens.

  • Ingredients: Feather Meal, Meat and Bone Meal, Blood Meal, Langbeinite
  • Granular fertilizer with a slow and steady release of nutrients
  • Can also be used in the vegetable garden

Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer is a versatile and powerful tool for gardeners seeking to enhance the health and appearance of their lawns and gardens. This all-purpose fertilizer, with its balanced formulation of 8% nitrogen, 3% phosphorus, and 5% potassium, provides essential nutrients that promote vigorous growth, deep green foliage, and strong root systems.

Understanding Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer

Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer is specifically designed to meet the nutritional needs of turfgrass but can also be used effectively in garden beds, vegetable plots, and ornamental gardens. The high nitrogen content is particularly beneficial for promoting lush, green growth, making it an excellent choice for lawns that need a boost in color and vitality. Phosphorus supports robust root development, while potassium enhances overall plant health and disease resistance.

Benefits of Using Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer

  1. Enhanced Greenery: The 8% nitrogen in Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer is crucial for photosynthesis, helping plants produce the chlorophyll needed for a vibrant green appearance. Regular application can transform a dull, patchy lawn into a dense, green carpet.
  2. Root Development: With 3% phosphorus, this fertilizer supports the development of strong root systems. Healthy roots are essential for nutrient uptake, water absorption, and overall plant stability. This is particularly important for new plantings and lawns that need to establish quickly.
  3. Disease Resistance: The 5% potassium in Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer strengthens plant cell walls, making them more resistant to diseases and environmental stress. Potassium also plays a role in water regulation within the plant, improving drought tolerance and reducing water stress.

How to Use Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer in the Garden

Lawns: For established lawns, apply Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer at the rate of 5-10 pounds per 1,000 square feet. It is best applied in the early spring and late summer when the grass is actively growing. Water the lawn thoroughly after application to help the fertilizer penetrate the soil and reach the root zone.

New Lawns: When establishing a new lawn, apply 10-15 pounds of Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer per 1,000 square feet before seeding or laying sod. Work the fertilizer into the top 2-3 inches of soil to ensure it is readily available to the emerging grass roots.

Garden Beds and Vegetable Plots: Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer can be used to prepare garden beds and vegetable plots. Apply 5-10 pounds per 100 square feet and work it into the top 6 inches of soil before planting. This will provide a nutrient-rich environment for seedlings and transplants, promoting healthy growth and productivity.

Ornamental Gardens: For ornamental plants, including shrubs and flowers, apply 1 cup of Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer per plant, evenly distributed around the drip line. For established plants, a spring application followed by another in mid-summer will keep them healthy and blooming throughout the growing season.

Tips for Best Results

  • Soil Testing: Conduct a soil test to determine the specific nutrient needs of your garden. This will help you apply the right amount of Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer for optimal results.
  • Regular Watering: Water your garden regularly, especially after fertilizing, to help dissolve the nutrients and carry them to the root zone.
  • Mulching: Mulching helps retain soil moisture and reduces nutrient loss through leaching. Apply a layer of organic mulch around your plants after fertilizing.
  • Monitoring Growth: Keep an eye on your plants' growth and health. Adjust the fertilizer application rate if needed to address any deficiencies or excesses.

Bio-Turf 8-3-5 Fertilizer is a reliable and effective solution for gardeners aiming to achieve lush lawns and productive gardens. Its balanced nutrient profile supports overall plant health, making it an essential addition to any gardening routine.
