I have been dumpimg iron in both powder iron chilide and water souble iron with a concentration of 7% 30ml/gallon with a hose end sprinkler for the past two weeks every 2-3 days and my lawn doesn't seem to be getting darker, my concrete walkways are stained with iron, but the lawn doesn't seems to be getting greener, any ideas why this is so ?

ding, ding, ding, we got a winner! Apply nitrogen then the iron will show results.

I thought nitrogen will induce fast growth which I don't want, anyways the liquid iron I used contains 15-0-0 nitrogen

turf will only uptake so much iron at 1 app so you either have reached that point at this time, you are doing something wrong or your ph is off.
a little N with the iron helps the uptake
same goes with some herbicides alittle N and roundup works better.
remember a little sugar makes the coffee taste better

You may want to think about a soil test if you are not getting the results you desire.
