We have about 2.25 Acres and its all Bermuda grass minus a few weeds.  I had True green lawn care fertilize my lawn last year and they used a urea style product.

I decided to try an organic process this year and terminated they contract with True Green.

I have a more clay type soil of which is common in the Tulsa Ok area. I just treated my yard with Aerify Plus a liquid aerating product (http://www.natureslawn.com/aerify-plus.php ) instead of the old mechanical method.

What I am looking for is the proper natural or organic fertilizer to follow up with after this treatment; I prefer a 1-2 a year type product if available.


Please let me know what you recommend and what it would cost me to have it shipped to Claremore OK.

Thanks,

Al

Have you read my lawn care article?

Why would you spray chemicals on your lawn?  Was your lawn sickly? 

Wow, 2.25 acres.  Do you have pics?  Why so much?  Football?

I checked on ringer and the cost seems to be a little high to treat 110,000 SF.  It does appear to be a great product although it requires 25 lbs per 1000 SF and I have 110,000 as stated above.

Just read through your lawn care article, great stuff. 

Answers all the questions except......."how do I get a lawn like the one I play golf on?"

BigAl, you gotta answer my questions or I'm not gonna play.

Hank,

My understanding is that golf started in scotland.  And the courses there are organic.  And the grass is tall.    So there are solutions. 

As for a putting green - well, that is usually a special variety of grass, and a lot of work (or nasty chemicals) goes into keeping it weed free.
