Fertilizer pick-up date

For those of you that ordered your home lawn fertilizer program through FCC, you may pick it up this Saturday from 8-10am.  The fertilizer came in last week and is ready for the early spring.  If by chance you cannot make that date and time, just let me know and we can make other arrangements.

If you would like to participate in the program and have not done so yet, let me know soon as we do not have many bags remaining.  Thanks to everyone that participated - we received over $1,700 in free product as of this post.  We will be using those funds to purchase product (fertilizer and chemicals) for this upcoming season, helping to keep our costs down. 

Here are the highlights of the plan for those that may be interested:
  • Four applications, less than $20 per application
  • Everything you need to keep your lawn healthy
  • Plan of application, we tell you when and how to apply
  • One stop shop, pick up all the products you need in one stop
  • Great value, save over 50% vs. purchasing at a home improvement store
  • Supports local business, all products are manufactured in Fostoria
For a one-time charge of $79.00 per 10,000 square feet, you'll receive:
  1. Mid-April app, 30-0-0 with Dimension pre-emergent (crabgrass control)
  2. Early-June app, 21-0-4 with Mallet insecticide (grub control)
  3. Mid-July app, 24-4-12, late summer feed
  4. Late-September app, 18-0-2 with Trimec (weed control) the best time to control weeds is in the fall
*Each application consists of 1 bag which covers 10,000 square feet.  Measure your lawn to be sure you order the correct number of bags.  Calibrate your spreader to apply 5lbs of product for every 1,000 square feet.  Always read and follow label directions.
