Application

Soil Mender Turf Soil Builder cannot effectively be applied with a domestic fertilizer spreader. To obtain maximum results, spread with a shovel or make even piles throughout area and use a garden rake to spread evenly. Your work will be generously rewarded with super results every time you apply Soil Mender Turf Soil Builder.

Planting Grass Or Sod

1. Prepare area to be seeded or sodded by removing all dead grass and weeds.
2. Use a garden rake to level the area and aerate existing substrate.
3. Add up to one(1) inch of Soil Mender Turf Soil Builder and rake to a level grade.
4. Spread an appropriate grass seed over area as directed on seed package. If sodding, tightly pack sod into area removing any area between sod.
5. Add a very light layer of Soil Mender Turf Soil Builder over planted sod or seed and slowly and gently water in.
Water frequently and keep moist until grass is established. When turf is established switch to a deep watering program by watering less frequently and for longer periods of time.

Repairing and Filling Trouble Spots

Soil Mender Turf Soil Builder is perfect for filling bare and problem spots. To patch bare spots, use the planting instructions above. When filling low spots, add an extra two(2) inches of soil to the low spot to help offset compaction of soil when watered.

Over-Seeding Turf

Soil Mender Turf Soil Builder creates an ideal foundation for over-seeding turf.
1. Using a garden rake, aerate and level your existing lawn by raking thatch, dead plants, and weeds out of your root zone.
2. Apply an appropriate grass seed for your hardiness zone and at the proper time of year. Follow directions on grass seed package.
3. Add 1/4 to 1/2 inch of Soil Mender Turf Soil Builder over the new seed and deeply water. Keep turf moist until established and then revert to deep watering habits.

Top Dressing Established Turf

One of the best things you can do for your established turf is top dressing. Top dressing turf adds essential organic matter which makes most fertilizers work better, makes turf more drought tolerant, and controls thatch build-up. To top dress:
1. Cut a four(4) inch hole in the upper corner of the bag.
2. Pour six(6) inch high piles evenly throughout your lawn.
3. Use a garden rake to evenly spread Soil Mender Turf Soil Builder over your existing turf. Turf should be covered with 1/4 to 1/2 of an inch of Soil Mender Turf Soil Builder.
4. Deep water turf after application. Care should be given to avoid uneven application of Turf Soil Builder which could make mowing more difficult.
Turf should be watered deeply and infrequently. This will encourage deeper, stronger root development. Application is recommended in early spring and early fall (rate may be doubled for fall application).

Raised Beds & Containers

Raised beds and large containers are a great alternative when working clay soils with poor drainage or sandy soils with excessive drainage. Raised beds and large containers also tend to warm up sooner offering gardeners a head start on the growing season. Till the native soil to a depth equal to the height of your selected bed (ex. till four inches deep if you want a four inch high bed). Mix Soil Mender Soil Mix with the native soil to make a 50/50 mix. One bag of Soil Mender Soil Mix covers twelve square feet one inch deep.

Raised Beds – Build a border around bed using landscaping timbers, crossties, blocks, hay, or some other medium that will keep soil in the raised bed. Fill the bed with Soil Mix or Soil Mender Raised Bed Mix and plant.

Containers – Fill the container with Soil Mix and plant.
